Steve Guppy

Where is Steve Guppy now?

Former Leicester City winger Steve Guppy hung up his boots in 2008 after playing in the United States with Rochester Rhinos where he was player/coach.

Over his 18 year career he made nearly 650 appearances for 11 teams winning the League Cup with Leicester, the Scottish Premier League with Celtic and the FA Trophy with Stevenage.

He also won one senior international cap for England in 1999 which made him the first player to have played for the national under 21’s side, the semi-pro ‘C’ side and also the ‘B’ side.

Upon retiring from playing he went into full-time coaching and stayed on at MLS team Colorado Rapids as assistant coach where he helped the side win the MLS Cup in his first season.

Guppy left the Rapids in 2011 after three seasons and moved back to England where he rejoined his former Leicester City manager Martin O’Neill at Sunderland as a first team coach.

Unfortunately he had to leave Sunderland after just a year when O’Neill was sacked and new coach Paolo Di Canio brought in his own backroom staff.

He linked up with O’Neill for a second time in 2013 when he was appointed as a specialist winger and striker coach for the Republic of Ireland national side but left when the manager was sacked in November 2018.

During his time with the Irish senior side he also assisted former Port Vale team-mate Neil Aspin for the 2018-19 season.

After a brief spell at Nottingham Forest (again with O’Neill) he moved back to the United States in 2020 to join newly-formed MLS side Nashville SC as assistant coach.
