Kenny Cunningham

Where is Kenny Cunningham now?

After 18 years of playing professional football in England including Premier League spells with Wimbledon and Birmingham City, Kenny Cunningham decided to call it a day in 2007 whilst playing for Sunderland.

A Republic of Ireland international, Cunningham represented his country on 72 occasions and was captain of the Irish 2004 FIFA World Cup squad.

Since retiring from playing, Cunningham has had coaching roles at non-league Nuneaton Town and at the Arsenal academy and has gone on to complete his UEFA Pro Licence which allows him to manage in any country in the world.

He was also assistant manager for the League of Ireland XI which competed in the Dublin Super Cup in 2011.

In April 2016, the Football Association of Ireland announced that Kenny Cunningham and other former Irish stars Damian Duff, Mark Kinsella, Keith Andrews and Stephen McPhail would be working within the FAI Emerging Talent Programme.

He had previously assisted with the under 15’s but went onto assist with the coaching of the Irish under 19’s team.

Predominantly working in the media now, Cunningham provides punditry and match analysis on Irish channel RTE as well as covering Irish national team games for Sky Sports.
