Former Man City Youth Player Dies At 17 After Being Released By Club

On Sunday, Premier League giants Manchester City paid tribute to former youth-team player Jeremy Wisten following his tragic death at the age of 17.

Witsen, a promising defensive talent born in Malawi and raised in the UK, joined Man City at the U-13 level in February 2016 and was recently released by the club.

Man City posted a tweet over Witsen’s death on Sunday night and revealed that they were “deeply saddened” by the news as senior players Raheem Sterling and Aymeric Laporte were among many who also paid their tributes.

Although there has been no confirmation on Jeremy Wisten’s cause of death, several reports claim that the teenager took his own life.

It is believed that Wisten was suffering from mental health issues and depression which led him to commit suicide.

Jeremy’s mother, Yakosah, was devasted upon hearing the tragic news of her son’s suicide but the Wisten family are yet to release a statement.
