Wayne Bridge

Where is Wayne Bridge now?

Arguably one of the best left backs in the Premier League in the early 2000’s, Wayne Bridge retired from football in 2014 after being released by Reading.

A career that took in spells with Chelsea, Southampton and Manchester City was hampered by knee problems which led to Bridge missing large chunks of the season.

Despite his injury setbacks Bridge still amassed 364 appearances and won the Premier League title, the FA Cup and the League Cup during his time at Chelsea.

He also represented England on 34 occasions and was a member of the 2002 FIFA World Cup and the UEFA Euro 2004 squads.

In retirement, Bridge has stayed away from football however he is still very much in the public eye due to his relationship with former The Saturdays singer Frankie Sandford.

The celebrity couple married in 2014 and have two sons together.

In November 2014, Bridge entered the Australian jungle as a contestant on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, following in the footsteps of other ex footballers Kieron Dyer, Neil Ruddock and Jimmy Bullard.

In a tearful conversation with fellow contestant Larry Lamb on day two, Bridge revealed that he has been a house husband since he had retired from playing football and he was missing his children enormously.

In an interview with the Sun in March 2017, Bridge revealed how he was disappointed by the fact that he will be remembered for his John Terry handshake snub in 2010 than for his playing career.

Bridge ignored the Chelsea captain when he want to shake his hand at the start of the game against Manchester City after it was revealed that his then girlfriend had cheated on him with Terry.

In March 2018 Bridge stepped into the boxing ring to fight Made in Chelsea’s Spencer Matthews for the charity Sport Aid winning the bout convincingly with a second round knockout.

He is currently keeping busy within various media channel including podcasts, radio and television.
