Supermac sale after ‘nasty’ health scare
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. The striker found fame in the 70s and made history with all five goals for England against Cyprus in 1975, a Wembley record. The sale is on October 23 at Stacey’s Auction House, Rayleigh. the-saleroom.com
