Justin Hoyte is a former Arsenal star who was part of the Invincibles team that went an entire Premier League season without defeat.

According to The Sun, Hoyte went on to make a total of 68 appearances for his boyhood club.

However, only one of those came during the Invincibles campaign under the tutelage of Arsene Wenger, with the right-back coming on as a substitute against Birmingham.

Be that as it may, the now 38-year-old was heavily involved with the youth teams, winning the FA Youth Cup with the team at some point.

What is Hoyte doing after quitting football?

SunSport reports that Hoyte moved to Middlesbrough in 2018 after he departed Emirates Stadium and went on to have stints with Millwall and Dagenham & Rebridge.

He would later that year sign for US-based side FC Cincinnati where he eventually hung his football boots.

Hoyte is now understood to be the CEO of his company that he started in 2021 after calling time on his football career.

The former defender's company is called Future Champions Sports Group Limited, which connects top clubs and academies with football, business and government structures across five continents.

Sagna takes up odd job

Earlier, Sports Brief reported Arsenal and Manchester City star Bacary Sagna has taken on an odd venture after calling it quits on his football career – backpacks.

Having carried the pressure of playing in the Premier League for a decade, the Frenchman, 39, has decided it is a good idea to help people travel light through some swanky backpacks.

According to reports, Sagna has now partnered with French company Gravipack, and the move was purely a slice of serendipity.

It turns out that Sagna bumped into founder Mohammed Errafi and after a conversation, decided to pursue the venture.
