Falling from grace, going down the road to minor teams

DATE: 26.06.2016 - SOCCERVOICE - NEWS - SEASON 2016-17

Lately two former top level performers, Micky Adams and Nigel Reo-Coker are looking for work where no one thought they would be
 

Micky Adams once was in charge of Leicester City in the Premier League, back in the year 2004. A lot of water has run through the river since then and a number of positions and jobs has been passed since he said goodbye to Leicester City.

Adams who was once looked up on as one of the best young manager prospects in English football, galvanised his career with Fulham and Brighton, before coming to Leicester. He also had a good spell, twice, in charge of Port Vale.

Adams was last week reported to take a job as U.18 coach at Harborough Town. Adams is living in Leicestershire and believed to be willing to take on the position as it was close to his home. Surely the 55 year old should be up for other positions in the future.

Former Aston Villa and Bolton midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker is another "former great" that this season has been trying to get his career back on track with Norwegian 2nd tier club, Start Kristiansand.

The 33 year old midfielder was this week released after a short period and only one league game played. After leaving Bolton in 2012, he has had spells at Ipswich, Vancouver, Chivas and Montreal before his short time with Start.

Start had injury problems and they took a chance on Reo-Coker, but they soon found out that he had a long road back to his "good old days" and without a game since 2015, things became difficult for the former England U.21 international.

Reo Coker is still only 33 years of age and many players can go on for another three, four or five years, but the Norwegian club thought that was not worth it, so we just have to wait and see if Reo-Coker will play again somewhere else.

A number of great players from the past, ends up where you would think they would never play. World Cup winner Bobby Moore, loved to play and that might the reason why so many players decides to continue even after such great careers. They just love playing and can't stop.

As a 37 year old he played on for Danish club Herning Fremad, but it lasted for just 9 games before he decided to leave.

Frank Worthington was another that just continued to play at clubs into his 40's and in some places you thought you would never find him. Cemaes Bay and Guisley are two of the teams he played for before hanging up his boots at the age of 44.

Tony Currie, another great player for England, QPR, Sheffield United and Leeds, ended his career at Torquay, but before that had a short spell in Canada for Toronto Nationals. The league lasted just one summer, the summer of 1983.

Below you will find a list of players of importance, who turned out at clubs far from their famous time in football.
