Where is Tony Cottee now?

One of the most prolific goalscorers of the 1980’s and 1990’s, Tony Cottee retired from playing in 2001 after a brief spell at Millwall.

Over his 19 year career he made over 700 appearances scoring nearly 300 goals for eight sides including a season in Malaysia with Selangor where he won the FA Cup.

He also represented the England national side on seven occasions between 1986 and 1989.

Upon retiring from playing he embarked on a new career in the media and is now a regular commentator and pundit for Sky Sports on their Soccer Saturday Show.

He also spent time working in PR for his father’s insurance firm for a few years and now also works as a PR consultant and ambassador for construction industry supplier Rudridge.

Cottee is also a popular figure on the after-dinner speaking circuit where he entertains fans with amusing anecdotes about his long playing career.

In 2019 he suffered a small brain haemorrhage but has since made a full recovery.
