Keith Curle

Where is Keith Curle now?

Former Manchester City defender Keith Curle retired from playing in 2002 after spending three seasons at Mansfield Town.

Playing for 24 years he ended his career having made nearly 800 first-team appearances for 10 clubs – the majority of them for Wolves, Bristol City and Man City.

He also represented the England national side on three occasions and was a member of the 1992 UEFA European Championships squad.

Taking on the managerial reigns in a full-time capacity at Mansfield after hanging up his boots, he was controversially sacked after two years at the club after accusations of bullying a player. This was later overturned.

He made a return to management in 2005 when he joined Chester City but after a terrible run of 11 losses in 12 games he was sacked after just nine months.

A brief spell as manager of Torquay was followed by coaching spells back with former mentor Neil Warnock at Crystal Palace and then at Queens Park Rangers where he stayed until 2012.

He made a return to management soon after leaving QPR with Notts County but after an impressive start he was sacked after a year after his side won just two of eleven games in all competitions.

Curle then took some time out of the game before he was appointed manager of League Two side Carlisle United in September 2014 where he spent three seasons with finishes of 20th, 10th and 6th before leaving to further his career elsewhere.

In October 2018 he was appointed in his current role as boss at League One side Northampton Town.
