Dean Richards 1974-2011

On Saturday football learnt of the tragic death of Bradford City youth coach Dean Richards, ages just 36. The video above show some of the highlights of his career.

As a player Richards started out at his home town Bradford before moving on to Wolves. However it was his £8.1million move to Tottenham to follow Glenn Hoddle that caused quite the stir.

Richards was incredibly unlucky with injuries, rendering him unable to match expectations and ambitions and play for England. In 2005 was advised to retire because he was experiencing frequent dizzy spells and headaches.

A life cut tragically short after a career cut tragically short.

    Whoever put the piece together did a great job. It’s always sad to see a player’s career cut short because of injury or illness, but when their lives are lost too, it puts everything into perspective.
