Kenny Sansom,alcoholic England football legend, today reveals he’s ready to die. In a heartbreaking interview, the tormented homeless former Arsenal star finally admits defeat in his battle with the booze .
He tells how he’s facing his first Christmas alone after being dumped by his fiancée and becoming estranged from his family.
“I’m in the worst place I’ve ever been – I’ve never been this low,” said a tearful 58-year-old Kenny. I want to kill myself . I don’t feel like I’ve got anything left to live for. I want to forget my life. I can’t handle life any more. If I could end it now, I would. I know what I’m saying will hurt a lot of people, but I feel I need to get it out and be honest about how I feel.”
He admitted he has been borrowing money from pals and relying on the goodwill of hotel owners to give him a cheap bed for the night.
Kenny told how police and paramedics were called out last week amid fears he was about to end it all. He says he has just £50 to his name.
The latest shattering blow has been his split from fiancée Denise Mullins, 60, after ten -turbulent years together.
Last week he turned down an offer from an old team-mate to get him back in rehab.
