Where is Jimmy Bullard now?
A hugely likeable character, Jimmy Bullard’s football career was cut short in 2012 due to problems with his knees.
After starting out in non-league football with Corinthian FC and Dartford, he started his professional career in 1999 with West Ham and went onto make over 400 appearances with seven clubs.
Since retiring from playing Bullard has been extremely busy with various projects including a nutrition business and a company which helps professional sports people cope with the prospect or reality of retirement called Extra Time Management.
He also owns the One Bell pub in Crayford which he bought for his father as appreciation for his support throughout his career.
In 2014 he released his first book Bend It Like Bullard which is full of amusing stories from his career as a professional footballer.
Later that year he participated in the ITV show I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here but was the first to be voted out after initially being the bookie’s favourite to win.
When he came out of the jungle he got involved in more media work including a regular football podcast called The Magic Sponge with comedian Rob Beckett and he was also a regular guest on ITV show “Play to the Whistle” with Holly Willoughby and Bradley Walsh.
In 2016 Bullard starred in his own golf show on Sky Sports called Golf Juice which he co-hosted with DJ Spoony and Zoe Hardman as well as presenting his own show called ‘Jimmy Bullard Kicks Off‘ on satellite channel London Live.
Bullard made a return to football in September 2016 when he joined non-league side Leatherhead as manager but despite a great first season finishing 13th in the Isthmian League he left to pursue a full-time manager’s position at another club.
Currently without a football management position he has spent the last three years co-presenting Sky Sports show Soccer AM.
