MOST COMMENTED

Hannover 96 backup goalie Markus Miller was given time off to undergo treatment for mental exhaustion. He said in a statement that he wanted to tell “my club, our fans and the media about my illness” and that he would start treatment “immediately.” The news reawakened memories of the suicide of another Hannover goalkeeper, Robert Enke, eight months before he Miller joined the German club.

“Since I became a professional goalkeeper, I’ve been working with pressure, dedication and always with full commitment to build on my performances, to improve and stay at the top level, to put them at the service of my team and club,” Miller, 29, said. “For some time, I’ve had less and less of a feeling of really helping the team or bringing about something essential. Then I experienced a lot of increasing pressure and tension which began to affect me.”

Miller was meeting with psychologist and psychotherapist Martin Braun and will now start treatment in Gelsenkirchen in order “to make the symptoms more bearable.”
