Not too long ago I heard about my good friend Michael McComie’s passing. It was a very, very sad day for me. Obviously my thoughts and my prayers are with his family. Michael and I played football at a very young age. He became a very good friend of mine over the years. Of course I was his captain when we played at the World Cup in 1991 and he always greets me as a ‘skipper’ when he sees me. Today football has lost a dear friend. I have lost a dear friend. He will be very sadly missed. I just want to reach out to his family to say I am thinking about them and hopefully if I can be of any help just feel free to be in touch. I’m here in Dubai at the moment but my prayers and thoughts are with you all.
