Richard Dunne

Where is Richard Dunne now?

A tough-tackling defender, highly appreciated at every club he played for, Richard Dunne retired from playing in 2015 when he was released by Queens Park Rangers.

Over a 19-year playing career he made over 500 first team appearances for four clubs and won Manchester City’s Player of the Year for four consecutive years.

He also won 80 international caps for the Republic of Ireland and was a member of the squad which went to the 2002 FIFA World Cup Finals and the 2012 UEFA European Championships.

Dunne jointly holds the Premier League record for the most red cards with eight – a record he shares with Patrick Vieira and Duncan Ferguson.

Upon retiring from playing professionally, Dunne relocated to France where he has set up home with his family in Monaco.

He explained that one of the many reasons that he moved over there was because football wasn’t on the television 24 hours a day.

His son has inherited his talent and currently plays within the Monaco youth academy.

Dunne now works within the media and currently provides punditry and match analysis for Irish televison station TV3 as well as BT Sport.

He was also signed up by ITV as a pundit for their Euro 2016 coverage covering the Republic of Ireland’s matches.

Since 2017, Dunne has owned and operated his own football academy in Monaco and has obtained his UEFA A coaching badges.
