ROME – Fabian O'Neill, a former footballer from Cagliari, Perugia and Juventus, was hospitalized urgently last Friday in a Montevideo clinic.
To tell the story is the Gazzetta dello Sport. According to the doctors, Fabian O'Neill's physique fortunately reacted well and could be discharged in the next few days, "but the clinical picture is very serious and the liver is now compromised by alcohol abuse".
"He needs a transplant – revealed the daughter of the Uruguayan, Martina – but if he doesn't stop drinking immediately he won't be able to."
“Only a liver transplant could save him – says the daughter – But in these conditions he cannot face it. He needs help, but first of all he has to decide to change. "
“I squandered everything – the footballer said some time ago – but I have never hurt anyone, only myself. Many women tried to change me, but I never wanted to.
If they had tried to help me in the past I would have refused. I am like this, rebellious and proud ".
Four years ago, says Adriano Seu of the Gazzetta, “he was also forced to undergo a gallbladder surgery after which he was strongly advised to say goodbye to alcohol. But the abstinence lasted just a month and O'Neill fell back into the tunnel of alcoholism. " (Source: La Gazzetta dello Sport).
