Footballers and depression

Just a quick note to say there’s a great read available on the We Are Free Agents website available here written on the subject of mental health and depression in football. The article follows on with the recent news of Man City starlet Michael Johnson retiring from the game at just 24 years of age following a difficult period of his life.

The article also mentions the recently released PFA players handbook on mental health issues, another very interesting read which is again available on the previous link. It features former players such as Stan Collymore, Andy Cole and Paul Gascoigne, all talking about their past issues.
