Goater Returns To Man City In Coaching Role

October 8, 2021

[Updated] Shaun Goater has returned to Manchester City — where he had a stand out career as a player — with the Bermudian football legend set to join the Academy coaching team as part of a “programme aimed at increasing the number of Black, Asian and mixed heritage coaches.”

The Manchester City website said, “Shaun Goater has joined Manchester City’s Academy coaching set-up as part of a programme aimed at increasing the number of Black, Asian and mixed heritage coaches working full-time in professional football.

“The 51-year-old, who scored 103 goals in 211 games for the Club between 1998 and 2003, has embarked on a 23-month placement after successfully applying through the Premier League’s Coach Inclusion & Diversity Scheme [CIDS].

“He will work across all the Academy age groups, from the foundation phase up to the professional development phase, in a varied role which will provide a wide range of experience.

“A UEFA ‘A’ licence holder, Goater began his coaching career in his native Bermuda, where he won seven trophies whilst in charge of North Village Rams.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for me,” he said.

“To work at one of the best academies in the world, in top-class facilities and with some of the most talented youngsters in the country is something every coach aspires to.

“I enjoyed some wonderful times here as a player and, in this role, I am confident I can help the next generation on their journey, whilst also improving as a coach.

“It is so important that people from all backgrounds are represented within football and it is great to see Manchester City and the Premier League are committed to helping coaches from under-represented groups build a career in the game.”
