FOOT­BALL leg­end Mal­colm Macdon­ald is sell­ing trea­sured mem­o­ra­bilia af­ter fear­ing he was at death’s door.

Su­per­mac was rushed to hos­pi­tal with sus­pected deadly sep­sis only to find he had pseu­do­gout, an arthri­tis that causes sud­den painful swelling of joints.

The for­mer Eng­land, New­cas­tle and Ar­se­nal star is now mak­ing a will for his seven chil­dren. He said: “I had a nasty turn. It does bring it home to you.” Mal­colm, 67, is sell­ing 30 Eng­land caps, shirts, medals and an Ar­se­nal FA Cup Fi­nal track­suit.
