Where is Steffen Freund now?

A fan’s favourite at White Hart Lane and famed for never scoring a goal in 116 appearances for them, Steffen Freund retired in 2004 after a short spell with Leicester City.

Starting his career in Germany in 1988, he finished his career having made over 400 first team appearances for six teams winning the Bundesliga twice and the Champions League with Borussia Dortmund and the League Cup with Spurs.

He was also an important part of the Germany national side between 1995 and 1998 and was part of the side that won the 1996 UEFA European Championships.

Upon retiring from playing Freud went into coaching and spent time as assistant head coach of the Germany under-20’s side whilst completing his coaching badges.

During this period he also assisted Nigeria national side manager Berti Vogts for their 2007 African Cup of Nations campaign.

After completing his coaching badges he was appointed manager of the German under-16’s national team and then the under-17’s side.

In July 2012 Freund was appointed assistant head coach at Tottenham Hotspur working with manager Andre Villas-Boas and then Tim Sherwood before moving to an international technical co-ordinator role when Mauricio Pochettino was appointed.

Leaving the club in 2015 he has since forged a new career in broadcasting and has worked for a number of television channels across the globe including Stadium Astro, Eurosport and RTL.
