Where is Steve McManaman now?
After a glittering career both in England and Spain, Steve McManaman called time on his playing career in 2005 after two seasons playing for Manchester City.
He is widely regarded as one of England’s finest football exports in the modern era and won the Spanish La Liga title twice as well as the UEFA Champions League twice with Real Madrid.
In addition to the trophies he won in Spain, he was also an FA Cup and League Cup winner with Liverpool.
On the international stage he represented the England national side on 37 occasions, scoring three goals and was a member of the squad which played in the 1996 and 2000 UEFA European Championships and the 1998 FIFA World Cup finals.

Since retiring from playing McMananan has been a regular face within the media as a pundit and analyst for networks such as ESPN, Setanta Sports and Al-Jazeera but he mostly works for BT Sport as a match day pundit for their live Premier League football coverage.
Regarded as one of BT Sport’s senior analysts, he has since moved into co-commentary which he does alongside his studio and pitch-side analysis.
Aside from his television work, he has been involved in a number of business interests including an executive directorship of Carson Yeung’s company Grandtop International Holdings Ltd which had purchased a stake in Birmingham City in 2007.
Yeung had confirmed that McManaman would have a role at the club when the takeover went through and he was appointed as a board director in 2010 but resigned in 2012
He has also dipped his toe into coaching and has spent time at the Liverpool academy alongside former players Rob Jones and Robbie Fowler where he assisted with the coaching of the under-18 and under-21 sides.
In January 2018, McManaman was named as one of La Liga’s new ambassadors who will work with other former La Liga players to boost the image of the league to the world.
He has also held ambassadorial roles with both UEFA and FIFA.
