Robert Enke: The lessons learned from a life too short
On the 10th November, 2009, Germany goalkeeper Robert Enke committed suicide in the city of Hanover.
Enke, who won eight caps for the German national side and played for Benfica, Barcelona and Hanover 96 amongst others, had suffered from three bouts of depression during his life and never felt comfortable to openly talk about his battles.
So what has football learned and how have attitudes towards mental health changed in the sport since Enke's tragic death?
German football journalist Raphael Honigstein and former Liverpool and England goalkeeper Chris Kirkland, who has also suffered from depression, join John Bennett to discuss Enke's story, why he struggled with his mental health and what has changed in the sport to help players feel more able to talk about their feelings.
During the podcast, we speak to Enke's wife Teresa about what the last 10 years has been like, why 'Robbie' couldn't reveal his depression publicly and how the Robert Enke Foundation is helping tackle mental health issues.
We'll also hear from Enke's agent, Jorg Neblung, and the outgoing Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness.
