Career History
Recent History

Teddy Sheringham began his career with Millwall as an apprentice. Following loan spells at Aldershot and Djurgaarden in Sweden, and after playing 220 league appearances for Millwall, scoring 93 goals, he was bought by Nottingham Forest in 1991 where he came to prominence.

Whilst at Forest he played with a young Roy Keane. At the end of his first full season at the City Ground, Sheringham was sold to Tottenham Hotspur for £2.1 million. At Spurs he made 166 League appearances and scored 76 League goals.A full international, Sheringham played an important part in England's success in Euro 96.

However, concerned that at the age of 31 he had yet to win a major trophy, he asked for a transfer in the summer of 1997 and was bought by Manchester United in the summer of 1997 for £3.5 million from Tottenham Hotspur.

He made his debut for United, ironically at White Hart Lane, against his old club Spurs. His season, after a good start began to falter after January and  United finished pot-less. He was also a member of the England World Cup squad in 1998, playing in two games.

Sheringham's intelligent passing and creativity make him a dangerous player who can find the key to unlock opposition defences.His impact on games where he comes on as substitute is noticeable as he gives United an extra set of attacking options.Not only this but his aerial power gives the United attack height that it lacks with Cole,Yorke and Solskjaer.

After being overshadowed by the Yorke-Cole strike partnership for most of the 1998-99 season, Teddy Sheringham came good at the end of the season. Sheringham's role in United's treble of 1998-99 was considerable.He scored the opening goal in the FA Cup Final win over Newcastle and the last minute equaliser against Bayern Munich in the Champions League final.Not only that but he also set up Solskjaer's winner with a header. While many had written him off he still had impressive performances against Juventus, Arsenal (the FA Cup Replay)  Sheffield Wednesday and Bayern,which showed his ability was as good as ever.

Having came to United to win trophies, after the failure of last year Teddy was able to put an end to the terrace taunt that followed his every appearance. Finally he was a winner and what a winner. Premier League, FA Cup and European Cup medals all in the one magnificent season.So, the song now goes: "Oh Teddy Teddy,you joined Man United and you won it all".

The 1999-2000 season saw Teddy in much the same role as a super-sub but he still made a valuable contribution coring vital goals against Sheffield Wednesday and Arsenal (which shut up the taunting Gooners fans).After specualation about his future Teddy signed a deal in May keeping him at Old Trafford for another season.
