5 footballers who committed suicide


4. Alan Davies (1961-1992)

Manchester United’s trophy-laden history is star-studded with a list of legendary names. Unfortunately, Alan Davies was far off from making that list.

An English-born Welsh footballer, Davies started his career with Manchester United but made only 10 appearances for them and scored just one goal.

He further played for Newcastle, Carlisle United,  and Charlton Athletic, before joining Swansea in 1987. Five years later, however, Davies was found dead in his car as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning. He apparently committed suicide after dropping off his daughter to school.

In August 1992, Manchester United and Swansea City played a testimonial in his honour.
