FOOTBALL has continued to pay its respects to Gary Speed, who was found dead at his home on Sunday having apparently committed suicide.
Matches this week in the Football League and Carling Cup have seen supporters and players take part in a minute’s silence or applause for the former Wales manager. Chesterfield goalkeeping coach Mark Crossley, who played with Speed for Wales, told The Star: “The last time I spoke to Gary was 10 days ago. I phoned him for a signed Wales shirt for my charity Mencap and it was here the next morning - first class delivery.
“That’s the best way to sum Gary up for me. If you lined 100 people up against a wall as to who’d do something like this then Gary would be the last person you’d pick. I’m asking the same question as everybody else ‘why?’ and we might never know.”
