Where is Warren Barton now?

After a long career in the top-flight, Warren Barton hung up his boots in May 2005 after returning to Dagenham and Redbridge – the club he where he started his career.

Playing for 16 years he made over 450 first team appearances for six clubs and was at one point the most expensive defender in English football after his £4 million move from Wimbledon to Newcastle United. 

He also represented the England national side on three occasions in 1995.

Upon retiring from playing Barton coached in the UK with Dagenham and also Brighton and Hove Albion before moving to the United States in 2008 where he coached the LA Galaxy under-18’s side.

After two years at the Galaxy he joined the newly re-established side San Diego Flash as partner and technical advisor before stepping up to become president and head coach of the club.

In 2012 Barton was appointed general manager and technical director of USL third-tier side Los Angeles Blues but left after a year in the role.

He currently works as technical director and academy head coach of San Diego side Del Mar Sharks.

Away from the coaching he has forged a successful broadcasting career as a highly respected football pundit and analyst in the United States, mainly for Fox Sports.
