Keith Curle

Where is Keith Curle now?

Former Manchester City defender Keith Curle retired from playing in 2002 after working in a player-manager capacity at Mansfield.

He had already gained valuable coaching experience during his time at Sheffield United two years earlier when he worked with Neil Warnock as a player-coach.

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

In 2005 Curle was back in management when he was appointed manager of Chester City but after a terrible run of 11 losses in 12 games he was sacked just nine months into the job.

 A brief spell as manager of Torquay was followed by a coaching spell back with former mentor Neil Warnock at Crystal Palace.

When Warnock was appointed manager of Queens Park Rangers, Curle followed in the capacity of first team coach.

Curle spent 22 months at Loftus Road before leaving the club when Warnock was sacked in January 2012.

However, he wasn’t out of work for long and in February 2012 he was snapped up by Notts County as manager after they had sacked Martin Allen.

After an impressive start at County,  he was unfortunately sacked in February 2013 after his side won just two of eleven games in all competitions.

He was back in football management 18 months later when he was appointed manager of League Two side Carlisle United.

After three seasons at the club with finishes of 20th, 10th and 6th, he left the Cumbrian side to further his career elsewhere.

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