Notts County defender Matt Tootle says gambling is “rife” in football as he revealed his own problems with betting.
The 27-year-old spoke in 2017 about how he had been dealing with mental health issues.
Tootle said on Twitter on Wednesday: “I’ve been a compulsive gambler for as long as I remember and it has brought to me some of my worst memories.
“This problem is rife in football and something needs to be done about it and I’m hoping to also help with that now.”
