What is Nedum Onuoha up to these days after his QPR exit?

Believe it or not, Nedum Onuoha actually made an appearance for Manchester City in their title-winning season in 2011-12 – although he can’t call himself a Premier League winner.

The defender’s solitary outing came in a victory at Wigan in January, although that wouldn’t be enough for him to receive a medal because he joined Queens Park Rangers than two weeks later.

Despite having appeared just three times in six months, Onuoha quickly became a regular at Loftus Road, although partly because he was reunited with his former City manager Mark Hughes, who’d used him regularly when at Man City.

Ironically, on the final day of that season, when City were lifting their first Premier League crown, Onuoha was on the Etihad Stadium pitch celebrating himself – with QPR’s 3-2 defeat enough for them to maintain their topflight status.

When were QPR founded?

Despite suffering relegation the following season, now one of the more experienced heads, the former England U21 international remained in West London, and would end up making 224 appearances in total before his departure in September 2018.

But at 31, and with still plenty to offer, what happened to Onuoha after leaving QPR?

Onuoha wanted a new challenge, and found one across the pond – experimenting Major League Soccer after signing for Real Salt Lake.

However, after just three seasons and more than 50 matches in the States, the defender finally announced his retirement earlier this month – with his final professional appearances coming in Salt Lake’s 2-0 defeat to Sporting Kansas City on 8 November.

A career that began in Manchester and ended in Utah, via a long spell in the capital, it’s safe to say it’s been some ride for Onuoha.
