Where is Teddy Sheringham now?
After a highly successful career winning virtually every domestic honour with Manchester United, Teddy Sheringham finally retired from playing in 2008 at the age of 42 whilst at Colchester United.
In addition to winning four Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the UEFA Champions League on the domestic front, Sheringham also had a distinguished international career winning 51 caps and scoring 11 goals.
He also represented England in the 1996 European Championships as well as the 1998 and 2002 World Cup Finals.
Upon retiring from professional football in 2008, Teddy Sheringham has been a noticeable figure on the world poker scene, playing and winning various competitions worldwide
His son Charlie Sheringham has followed him into the game and is currently plying his trade in the lower leagues.
In May 2014, Teddy Sheringham joined former club West Ham United as an attacking coach after the board asked for the team to play in a more attacking style.
This appointment paid immediate dividends as they scored twice as many goals in their first 12 games compared to the previous season.
After a year at West Ham United, Teddy Sheringham left the club to take on his first managerial role at League Two side Stevenage.
In November 2015 Sheringham registered himself as a player in preparation for a Herts Senior Cup clash against local rivals Welwyn Garden City FC but he didn’t make an appearance.

Unfortunately Teddy Sheringham’s time at Stevenage ended after only 29 games as he was sacked in February 2016 after winning just six times.
Stevenage’s chairman Phil Wallace said “Normally we’d have one or two major ops on key players in a season but we’ve had more this season than the last three combined.
“Teddy came in having to work on a lower budget than we’ve had before and the lack of available funds has made it difficult to get the players he’d like.
“He’s given it his all but it hasn’t worked and now we have to thank him for his efforts and move on.”
In May 2016, Teddy Sheringham was signed up by betting company Paddy Power as a columnist for their Euro 2016 campaign.
Sheringham was back in football management in July 2017 when he was appointed head coach of two-time winners of the Indian Super League Atletico de Kolkata,
His new side included former Premier League stars Jussi Jaaskelainan, Ryan Taylor and former Tottenham Hotspur team-mate Robbie Keane.
Unfortunately Sheringham’s time in India was’t successful and he won just three of his 10 games in charge prompting the club’s owners to relieve him of his duties in January 2018.
Teddy Sheringham #One2Eleven (4-4-2 Formation)
Teddy Sheringham was a guest on Sky Sports programme The Fantasy Football Club in December 2012 where he picked the eleven best players he had ever played with in their #One2Eleven section of the show.
GK – Peter Schmeichel – I was lucky to play with the two best goalkeepers around at the time in Schmeichel and David Seaman but Big Pete just edges it.
RB – Gary Neville – been the best right back in the country for the last 15 years.
LB – Denis Irwin – 9 out of 10 every week. Strong with his right foot and left foot. Perfection! No one ever ripped him apart.
CB – Tony Adams – a leader of men. Euro 96 he was fantastic when he had to have injections in his knee before the game. Played with him for England since I was 15/16 – love him!
CB – Jaap Stam – an absolute mountain and a fantastic player. A great asset to have in your team.
RM – Darren Anderton – ‘Shaggy’ to his friends was just awesome. A clever player, team player, scored goals and made goals. Great runner and great engine but suffered from a lot of injuries.
CM – Roy Keane – he made things tick. If he was missing a Manchester United game the team wasn’t as thorough, hard and nasty and inevitably we didn’t win.
CM – Paul Gascoigne – he was a genius and the best English player I ever played with.
LM – Ryan Giggs – without doubt the best left-sided player in the country for the last 20 years. He could do everything – a legend.
ST – Alan Shearer – the best goalscorer in the land. Had loads of injuries but always scored goals.
ST – Jurgen Klinsmann – he just won the World Cup when he came to Tottenham and we though yeah, go on then….and he did. He was inspirational.
