From Addiction To Alanyaspor: The Redemption Of Steven Caulker
In a frank interview about his desperate struggles with gambling and alcohol addiction, Steven Caulker reflects upon his difficult journey with Mark and Andros - who experienced similar problems to his former teammate and good friend as a young player.
From training by himself through being shunned by ex-colleagues and turned down by 70 clubs, he's suffered many a setback. But circumstances are looking up.
Now plying his trade at Turkish side Alanyaspor, Steven is in a much better place mentally and, it seems, geographically - he spends his afternoons walking along the beach, playing his guitar and fishing! He also reveals how he's now in touch with current players at the highest level who are going through the same tribulations as he did.
