Former Manchester United and Sheffield United player Febian Brandy’s heartbreak after losing both parents on same day
Former Sheffield United forward Febian Brandy has paid tribute to his parents after they both died on the same day.
The 32-year-old, who made 15 appearances for the Blades during the 2013/14 season, shared the heartbreaking news via social media on Monday.
He tweeted: “Never thought I’d be writing something like this! Losing 1 parent is bad but losing both parents on the same day is something I can’t get my head around.
"Both my parents passed on Saturday with my mum passing roughly 5 hours after my dad. Love you guys more than you know.”
Brandy left Sheffield United in 2014 after one year at the club and signed for Rotherham United.
The former Manchester United trainee also had spells with Swansea City, Walsall and Gillingham in his 11-year playing career.
He also represented England at various youth levels before becoming a full international with Saint Kitts and Nevis.
After retiring, Brady set up the app Skouted which allows players to showcase their talent.
