Where is Maik Taylor now?

Birmingham City’s first choice goalkeeper from 2004 to 2008, Maik Taylor hung up his gloves in 2013 after a season with Millwall.

Taylor’s impressive displays for the Blues in 2003-04 earned him a nomination for the Premier League’s team of the season.

Over a 20-year professional playing career he played for six clubs from the old Division Three to the Premier League winning the Second Division and First Division titles with Fulham and the League Cup with Birmingham.

He was also the main keeper for the Northern Ireland national side between 1999 and 2011 winning 88 caps.

In 2015 at the age of 43 Taylor was drafted into the Northern Ireland squad as third choice keeper when Roy Carroll sustained a stomach injury but wasn’t required to play.

Since retiring from playing, Taylor has completed his UEFA coaching badges and was the Northern Ireland goalkeeping coach from 2013 to 2019.

After leaving the international setup he joined Bradford City as a coach on a short-term deal until the end of the 2018/19 season before leaving to join Walsall in a similar role.
