I read in news that former Liverpool footballer and Captain Tommy Smith will sell all of his medals which he won during his successful career at Anfield, Liverpool, England. Tony Smith also expected that his collection will fetch him around $ 0.2 million. He also said that “I’m not skint, I don’t have to do this, but I’m getting old and the money is of more use to me now than the medals.”
After reading this news I came to a conclusion that this problem is not only in Pakistan. After every month or so a former Pakistani footballer, boxer or hockey player announce that he is unable to meet his expenses and urged the government to help him.
I hope that all these sportsperson around the world are taken care by their concerned sports authorities.
