Where is Mikael Silvestre now?

A key member of the successful Manchester United side of the 2000’s, Mikael Silvestre retired from playing in 2014 after a spell in the Indian Super League with Chennaiyin FC.

Starting his career at French team Rennes in 1996, he ended his career having made 542 first team appearances for seven teams including spells in Italy, Germany and the United States.

Upon retiring from playing, Silvestre returned to former club Stade Rennais in a director of football role but left by mutual consent in 2016.

He has since done a lot of charity work and is president of Les Ecoles de l’Espoir which is a charity that helps children from very poor backgrounds get two or three years of schooling and also teaches them skills that they can use in their lives.

He also owns an award-winning rum business called Rhum St Barth which is operated out of the Caribbean island of St Barts.

Although he hasn’t done any professional football coaching since retiring he has gone on record to say that he may do in the future having already passed his UEFA A Licence.
