Manchester City Academy Player Jeremy Wisten Did Not Receive The Needed Support Prior To Suicide – Inquest Told

Former Manchester City academy player, Jeremy Wisten took his own life two years ago after the club released him from their books and according to an inquest into the matter, the young man struggled with rejection and seeing his colleagues move on to achieve bigger and better things

On October 24, 2020, Wisten, who had just turned 18, was discovered dead by his mother in his sister’s room at their Manchester home. He had been with Manchester City since he was 13 years old and had been let go less than two years prior.

In 2018, the young man had a major knee injury that left him in a lot of pain and may have jeopardized his prospects of being kept by the Citizens. Wisten found it “difficult” to see some of his former comrades succeed following his departure, according to the Manchester Coroner’s Court.

Tommy Doyle, Liam Delap, and Cole Palmer were teammates of Jeremy Wisten, who have gone on to make the Manchester City first team. Palmer was one of the people who paid respect to Wisten after his passing.

Despite the fact that Jeremy’s death was ruled a suicide, his family claims there were no indicators he was having trouble and that “no change in his behavior” had occurred before the incident. His father is convinced that he did not mean to commit suicide.

“He was a born athlete who was always very sporty and competitive. He always wanted to come first in everything he did,” said Manila Wisten.

“Football became everything to him. He would kick the ball around the house and would never give anything less than his best. He would succeed in everything he did.”

“After the injury nothing was the same. It didn’t stop him fully in his tracks but he was in so much pain.”
