Maddy Cusack death: investigation finds no Sheffield United wrongdoing

An independent investigation examining the leadup to the death in September of the Sheffield United vice-captain, Maddy Cusack, has found no evidence of wrongdoing at the South Yorkshire club.

The 27-year-old midfielder combined playing for Championship side Sheffield United with a job as a marketing executive at Bramall Lane but her family said her spirit had been “broken” in the months preceding her death and subsequently told the BBC that the pressure on female footballers is “way too much”.
