Matthew Upson

Where is Matthew Upson now?

The much-travelled former England defender Matthew Upson retired from playing at the end of the 2015-2016 after his release from MK Dons.

Upson started his Premier League career in the successful Arsenal team of the late noughties/ early 2000’s and was a member of the double-winning side of 2001-02.

Despite a breakthrough season where he had forced his way into the team ahead of Martin Keown, Upson broke his leg in February 2002 which ruled him out for the remainder of the campaign.

Having made 14 Premier League appearances that season, he qualified for a Premier League winners medal but played no part in the FA Cup run therefore was ineligible to receive a medal.
