Clarke Carlisle

Interviews with newsmakers and personalities from across the globe. It is many a young boy's dream to become a professional footballer, understandable given the riches and the adulation on offer to the biggest stars in the world's most popular sport. But behind football's flashy facade there are real problems: racism, corruption and, amongst some players, dangerous levels of depression.

HARDtalk speaks to Clarke Carlisle, newly retired professional footballer and chairman of England's Professional Footballers Association. Is there a cure for the sickness in football?
