Breaking: Former Footballer and TV Pundit Alan Hansen ‘Seriously Ill’ in Hospital

Former footballer and TV pundit Alan Hansen is “seriously ill” in hospital, his former club Liverpool FC has announced.

In a statement released today, the club said: “The thoughts and support of everyone at Liverpool FC are with our legendary former captain Alan Hansen, who is currently seriously ill in hospital.

A defender of the utmost elegance, Hansen’s outstanding raft of honours across a 14-year spell with the Reds – he joined from Partick Thistle in 1977 – included eight league titles, three European Cups, two FA Cups, and three League Cups.

‘Jocky’, as he was known by teammates, is in the top 10 for all-time appearances for the club having played 620 matches, and the Scottish centre-back also served as Liverpool skipper for four seasons.

The club is currently in contact with Alan’s family to provide our support at this difficult time, and our thoughts, wishes, and hopes are with Alan and all of the Hansen family.

Hansen, 68, has been a significant figure in football both on and off the pitch. After his illustrious playing career, he became a prominent football pundit, offering insightful analysis and commentary.

Liverpool fans and the wider football community have expressed their support and well-wishes for Hansen and his family during this challenging time. Further updates on his condition are awaited.
