Mark Robins

Where is Mark Robins now?

Famous for scoring the winner in a 1990 FA Cup game for Manchester United which ultimately meant that Alex Ferguson kept his job, Mark Robins retired from playing in 2005 after a brief spell with Burton Albion.

Over a 17 year career he ended up playing in over 400 games and scoring over 100 goals for 13 clubs including spells with teams in Greece, Spain and Denmark.

He also won the FA Cup and the European Cup Winner’s Cup with Manchester United and the League Cup with Leicester City.

Upon retiring from playing Robins went into management and joined Rotherham United in 2005 as assistant manager before stepping up to manager in 2007.

He had two successful seasons at The Millers challenging for promotion in both campaigns before moving to Barnsley in 2009 where he spent a couple of years until he resigned because of differences with the board.

In 2012 he joined Coventry City and quickly became a fan’s favourite after taking them from relegation to battlers to play-off contenders within a few months.

His success led to offers from other clubs and he had spells at Huddersfield Town and then Scunthorpe United before going back to Coventry at the start of 2017.

Within four weeks Robins had won his first trophy with the club when they won the Checkatrade Trophy against Oxford United at Wembley and he has enjoyed further success with promotion from League Two in 2018.

He signed a new contract with the Sky Blues in 2019.
