Sylvain Wiltord

Where is Sylvain Wiltord now?

Former Arsenal striker Sylvain Wiltord, a member of the famous ‘Invincibles’ team which went an entire Premier League season without losing, retired from playing in 2012 after a season back in his native France with Nantes.

A multiple trophy winner over his illustrious domestic career, he won the Premier League and the FA Cup twice with Arsenal and Ligue 1 three times with Lyon.

A mainstay of the France international side, Wiltord won 92 caps over a seven-year period winning the 2000 UEFA European Championships and the 2001 and 2003 FIFA Confederations Cup with his country.

Since retiring from playing, Wiltord has been involved in a variety of projects including football punditry on French television and ambassadorial work for footgolf.

In 2015, Wiltord was one of the competitors on French reality show Dropped which literally dropped eight sports people into inhospitable environments to see how they cope.

A day after Wiltord was eliminated from the competition in Argentina, there was a mid air helicoptor collision which claimed the lives of ten people including three of his fellow contestants.

He is now working as a sports consultant in his native France.
