Where is Michael Bridges now?

After a career which was unfortunately marred by injuries, Michael Bridges retired from playing at the end of the 2013-14 season after spending five years with Australian side Newcastle Jets.

In retirement, and now an Australian national, Bridges combined a career in media with a role coaching Newcastle’s Emerging Jets under 18’s side and also their senior side.

He left his coaching role in January 2015 after three important members of the coaching staff and five key players were sacked after they were accused of undermining the head coach.

Michael Bridges has continued with his media work and is a pundit in Australia for Fox Sports Australia, Wide World of Sports and SBS.

In January 2016 Bridges returned to the UK putting out feelers for a potential return as a coach or manager.

Bridges also took advantage of his time in the UK to do some media work and had a two week stint as an analyst on Channel 5’s football league show as well as doing some radio commentary.

For the 2016-17 season, Michael Bridges was part of the Guardian Newspaper’s Australian Premier League podcast talking about the latest news and results.
