Where is Trevor Sinclair now?

A versatile winger who could play on both flanks, Trevor Sinclair played his last professional game for Cardiff City in the 2008 FA Cup final before moving to Dubai with his wife and children when he was released by the club.

Starting his career at Blackpool he played for 19 years making 660 first team appearances for five clubs – the majority at West Ham United and Manchester City.

He also played for the England national side making 12 appearances and representing them at the 2002 FIFA World Cup finals.

Upon retiring from playing, Sinclair stayed in the UAE where he hosted the football talk show Final Score, a programme that reviews the week’s action from the Premier League on the Abu Dhabi Sports Channel.

He also worked as a coach for football academy Go-Pro Sports coaching young talent until he moved back to the UK in 2014 where he linked up with former QPR team-mate Darren Peacock as his assistant at non-league Lancaster City.  

After a disappointing start to the 2015-16 season, the pair left the club by mutual consent after both feeling they had taken the club as far as they could.

In November 2017, Sinclair was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving, common assault, criminal damage and racism in his home town of Lytham.

When the case went to trial in January 2018, he admitted to all charges and was given 150 hours of community service and a 20-month road ban.

Having worked as a regular pundit for the BBC’s football coverage since 2008 the corporation said ‘they had no scheduled plans to use him on our programmes’ after his conviction.

A holder of the UEFA ‘A’ licence, Sinclair spent time working as a scholar coach for the Orange Soccer Academy before joining the Pro Direct Academy Lancashire in his current role as head coach of the under-18’s side.
