It’s common knowledge that footballers can struggle with addiction after their careers come to an end as they chase the buzz of the game, something that seems to have been the case with Danny Murphy.

Asked if he was addicted to cocaine in the past on the Ben Heath Podcast, the former midfielder said: “For a while I was yeah, because I got to the point where I didn’t think I could do things without it.”

The 47-year-old was very honest as he spoke and it’s likely to be an interview that will help many ex-pros and others struggling with addiction too.
