Footballer ‘very unwell but safe’
FORMER footballer Clarke Carlisle is “very unwell but safe in hospital”, his family have said.
The 37-year-old was found in Liverpool on Friday evening after being reported missing amid concerns over his well-being.
The former defender’s wife Carrie, updating wellwishers on Twitter, said: “I know he would want me to remind you to talk to someone and ask for help if you feel the same way.”
The former Professional Footballers’ Association chairman, who made more than 500 appearances for nine clubs during his playing career, has a history of mental illness.
He launched a mental health charity called the Clarke Carlisle Foundation For Dual Diagnosis.
