    With the death of his wife and not having a routine of football I think he might be in for a difficult period. Hope it all works out for him....

    Feel deepest sympathy, losing your partner at any age is rough, but at such a young age as well.

    I also wish him all the best with his adjustment from "hanging up the boots" also a tough time for the male, having to accept that you just cant do it anymore.

    This will be some grieving process for the lad and I wish him well.

    I feel for the guy. However, I feel just as much, if not more, for the plethora of ordinary blokes left in this position and they do not have the comfort of Rio's bank balance. They deserve our thoughts.
