Steve McMahon

Where is Steve McMahon now?

Probably remembered more for his Liverpool career in the 80’s than his time spent in the Premier League with Manchester City, Steve McMahon retired from playing in 1998 after four years as player-manager of Swindon Town.

Joining Liverpool in 1985 as a replacement for Graeme Souness, McMahon won a number of trophies in his six years at Anfield including three First Division titles and two FA Cup wins before making the move to City.

He also represented England during this period of his career making 17 appearances and featuring in the 1990 FIFA World Cup.

After leaving his player-manager post at Swindon by mutual consent in 1998, McMahon returned to football management two years later when he joined Blackpool.

He enjoyed some highs and lows during his four-year spell at Blackpool which included two Football League Trophy wins, a relegation and a promotion but left the club at the end of the 2003-04 season after a row with senior management over funds.

McMahon’s last post as a manager was at Australian A-League side Perth Glory in 2005 but he left midway through the season amid media criticism of his coaching style and accusations of nepotism when he signed his son for the club.

Since 2006, he has been working as a football pundit in Singapore with ESPN Star Sports.

He also works as head coach at Million Dollar Feet in Malaysia which is a talent spotting scheme that ‘provides an exciting platform for young, up-and-coming superstars to shine by finecombing the country for the best talents aged 11 to 14. Two of the very best will be given the opportunity to get even closer to the dream of signing with a top European club’.

He is also a director at football coaching company Bootroom Academies alongside former Liverpool manager Roy Evans.
