Former Leeds United and Reading manager Brian McDermott suffered from alcoholism for much of his adult life, but thankfully it’s something he’s managed to get under control with the help and support of loved ones.

As a youngster, McDermott progressed through the Arsenal academy before making his first-team debut in 1979. When he came on the team to play alongside Pat Jennings, Pat Rice, David O’Leary, Liam Brady and Frank Stapleton, McDermott explains to FourFourTwo how drinking was encouraged at football clubs.
