A young footballer, Jeremy Wisten, 17 has allegedly killed himself after Manchester City released him.
The former Man. City youth player before his death was a promising talent born in Malawi and raised in the UK. He joined Man City at the U-13 level in February 2016 and was recently released by the club.
According to Malawi24, the 17-year-old was left depressed by the club’s decision to release him and he decided to take his life.
