Football star suffering from alcohol addiction

Don't follow in this football star's footsteps

"Everywhere we go, people are treating him like a god. Everyone we pass wants to stop him for an autograph or a photo. For me, this is weird."


George Best's son Calum reveals a side to the Manchester United player most people are less familiar with.


It's the story of how a man, a hero to tens of thousands, wasn't able to be a hero to the one it mattered most to: his own son.


It's a story of love and disappointment. Of a father's struggle to be a father. And a son's struggle for a father. It's the story of how an alcohol addiction tore a family apart and robbed a son of his father.


It's a story lots of children would be able to tell.


Perhaps, you know someone whose story this is. Or perhaps it's your story.


It's a story that ends in a liver transplant and broken relationships. But it could have ended differently.


And your story can end differently too!
