Kenneth Edward "Kenny" Cunningham (born June 28, 1971 in Dublinmarker) is an Irishmarker former footballer who used to play as a defender before retiring in 2007 after being released by Sunderland.

Football career

Cunningham started his career at Tolka Rovers and was there between August 1, 1988 and September 18, 1989.

He signed for Millwall and in the five years following made 136 league appearances, scoring one goal.

He and team mate Jon Goodman moved to Wimbledon in November 1994, for the joint fee of £1,300,000. Cunningham played 250 league games for Wimbledon.

He moved to Birmingham City in 2002. In his first season as a City player he was named Blues' Player of the Year.

However after the club’s relegation at the end of the 2005-06 season, Cunningham was released along with seven other first team players. On May 11, 2006, Cunningham launched a scathing attack in the press on manager Steve Bruce and the board, blaming the club's relegation on a lack of preparation throughout the season and likening the club to a "stiff corpse" that has "no heartbeat and, more worryingly, no soul".

Cunningham signed for Sunderland on July 19, with Sunderland chairman Niall Quinn praising his leadership qualities. He made 11 appearances for the Black Cats as they won the Championship, but no more appearances after October. He was released by manager Roy Keane at the end of the 2006-07 season.

After being released by Sunderland, Cunningham was unable to find a new club and retired as a player..He has been recently working for RTEmarker as a pundit on the Premiership and at live matches and for Sky Sports at Ireland games.

He was an Irish international, winning 70 caps for the Republic of Ireland national football team. He was named captain after the 2002 World Cup but retired after Ireland failed to qualify for the 2006 World Cup.
