Greek player commits suicide after omission from squad

- A Greek soccer player committed suicide after being left out of the squad for a domestic cup game with Olympiakos Piraeus, police said on Wednesday.
The 25-year-old, Yiannis Koskiniatis, jumped off a 12-metre cliff after being omitted from third division Diagoras Rhodes's squad to face the national champions in a fourth round match.

Police said the midfielder had left a note at the top of the cliff that read: "Being left out of the squad was a great injustice. I cannot take it any more."
Koskiniatis had played 61 times for Diagoras, scoring four goals, but was sidelined all season following an operation on his injured left leg. Local media reported that the club had sent him for psychological help.
He went missing around midday when his team mates met for their pre-match lunch. His motorbike was found at about 1700 local time in the Profitis Ilias area just outside Rhodes town.
The news was relayed to the Diagoras players during a brief delay in the match, which they lost 3-2.

I posted this because I wanted all to see the down side of the beautiful life of football. And I wont scold Abo. In time he'll undestand these things too.

Not long ago I read a few chapters of a book written by a young footballer with dreams. He moved to Inters Prima vera team and he was the king of the world. Life didnt turn out as he had hoped and he got lost in a world of drugs, alcohol and lived a very destructive life. All turned out so wrong for him and he tried to commit suicide too. He survived but his career is over but the good part is that he say he's drug and alcohol free now.

This young man's name is Martin Bengtsson and he's only 22.
