Since retiring from playing, Walsh has gone into the coaching side of the game and has linked up with former Leicester City team mate Muzzy Izzet to form The AFDA Academy.
The academy offers youngsters the opportunity to gain a BTEC Diploma in Sports Studies with training on a daily basis which helps them broaden their playing skills and fitness.
He also currently works at Leicester City’s King Power Stadium as a match day host in their hospitality lounges.

#One2Eleven (5-3-2 Formation)
Steve Walsh was a guest on Sky Sports programme The Fantasy Football Club in 2016 where he picked the eleven best players he had ever played with in their One2Eleven section.
GK – Tim Flowers – top man, good to have in the changing room. Extremely hard worker in training.
WB – Pontus Kamark – the best man-to-man marker I’ve ever seen. A brilliant trainer and looked after himself really well.
CB – Gerry Taggart – old-school player who just won the ball and passed it. There was no messing about with him.
CB – Matt Elliott – he read the game very well and also had a sexy little turn.
CB – Steve Walsh – He’s a total Leicester man and gave his all for Leicester every game -he’s a good captain to have.
WB – Steve Guppy – he wasn’t the greatest tackler in the world but had a great left peg. Good at tracking back.
CM – Muzzy Izzet – the best player I have played with. Had the tricks and scored some fantastic goals.
CM – Gary McAllister – a great free-kick taker and could ping a ball anywhere.
LM – Neil Lennon – loads of energy who got in there and won the ball. Always there if there was any trouble.
Striker – Emile Heskey – had everything, power, speed and strength. Very unselfish which meant that he didn’t score enough.
Striker – Tony Cottee – an out and out goalscorer. In the box he was tremendous.
