Kevin Richardson

Where is Kevin Richardson now?

A versatile midfielder during his playing days, former Aston Villa captain Kevin Richardson finally called time on his career in 2000 after a short spell with Blackpool.

After retiring from playing he went into coaching, first as youth team manager at Sunderland and then as Carlton Palmer’s assistant at Stockport County in 2001.

In 2004 he returned to Sunderland as reserve team coach eventually moving to first team coach when the club was taken over by a consortium led by Niall Quinn.

When Roy Keane took over at Sunderland he initially kept Richardson in his role before replacing him with former Manchester United coach Neil Bailey.

Staying in the North-East, Richardson then joined rivals Newcastle United as an academy coach before linking up with former Aston Villa team-mate Steve Staunton as his assistant manager at Darlington in 2009.

After 10 monts at Darlington, Richardson returned to Newcastle United and spent time assisting Dave Watson with the under 18’s side before moving onto his current role as coach of the under 17’s team.
