I feel for all his family and friends. At 17 he would have had the world at his feet and could have gone on and played with even bigger clubs.
I hope that the footballing world takes note and helps youngsters cope better because depression and rejection at that age probably isn't even a subject that is touched upon.
Sleep tight lad.
So sad. Be good idea to get pros at the top of the game to talk to these young guys n let them know how they turned things around after being released cos many of them have been released at some point in their career
Very tragic for the boy and his family. He had his whole life in front of him. The professional football world is a really pressurised competitive environment. This tragedy will prompt clubs to improve further this side of care for their youngsters.
