Stoke City takes action to tackle depression in football


Stoke City has become the first Premier League club to actively address the issue of depression in football, with the help of former striker Vincent Pericard.

Elite Welfare Management, a not-for-profit organisation set up by Pericard, will speak with and offer confidential support to their players.

BBC Sport's Tim Hague speaks to Pericard, and former Peterborough United and Norwich City player Leon McKenzie, about their own experiences.
