Just read the extract and, as usual, you are shocked by the people who gave serious mental health problems. Looking at him on LFCTV joking around you wouldn't think he ever had a care in the world.

Interesting to see what all sports bodies have in place for retiring athletes as the missing adrenaline rush and no training regime must have a serious impact both be tally and physically.

The timing of you posting this is impeccable....thank you. Certainly helped me and more importantly has given my missus a better understanding of this silent killer that that has affected her husband for the last few years. Hats off the LFC, Jason and Chris and also the families involved.

Fair play to him for facing his demons and coming out of it a better person. Seems like a fan in the studio if you know what I mean.
