My god! :(


Edit: He was only on Football Focus yesterday looking fit and well. They are talking about it on all the news channels now. This is really really sad news.

That was my first thought he looked fine on Football Focus only yesterday. Great footballer and had potential to do well as the Welsh manager.

Unbelievable, especially the timing after the great run he's been on with Wales. Perhaps this will give that type of depression some exposure, where the person can seemingly be incredibly successful yet underneath are still void of something and need help.


I'll always remember watching Match of the Day as a kid seeing his bullet headers fly in on a regular basis.
