Ex-chelsea Players - Where Are They Now?

0 posts in this topic

In another thread mention was made of Joel Kitamirike, ex Chelsea 'hot prospect' who ended up in prison for supplying drugs, and it got me on to pondering the outcomes of other ex-players.

Below are a few I've heard of / read up on recently: -

Frank Leboeuf - In Hollywood trying to forge an acting career (but evidently not as successful as fellow ex-player Vinnie Jones)

Ken Monkou - Pancake shop owner / manager

Peter Bonetti - Retired postman!

Mickey Hazard - Occassionally spotted as a cab driver in Croydon, although I think he's still in football coaching too

John Dempsey - Is a care worker in North London

Obviously recently retired footballers aren't often spotted in the local job centre, and most pre-Sky who couldn't aford to retire outright stayed in football in some capacity. But if anyone has any to add, the quirkier the better, please share below!

Its a real shame that John Bumstead, arguably one of the most loyal and unsung players ever to pull on the royal blue, isn't employed in some sort of capacity where he belongs at the Bridge.

Another one

Clive Walker (my first Chelsea hero) - BBC Radio London Commentator and pundit. Was still playing for Woking and showing a fair bit of pace still past the age of 40.

Pat Nevin - Channel 5 Uefa Cup pundit and commentator. Don't know how it finished for him as Motherwell chairman.

Teddy Maybank - anyone remember him looking ridiculous on Blind Date??

Still does a bit of corporate hospitality and events with Jason Cundy too, who himself does a lot of media work.

Kerry Dixon - events and match day hospitality.

Ron Harris - Golf days and charity events as well as match day hospitality.

All of the above can be booked for private events at the right price too.
