The 55-year-old former Arsenal player spoke openly to Express.co.uk explaining that he wishes to bring some awareness to “mental health and addiction” to the BBC show, after having his own battles. The footballing legend has decided this is the right time to commit to the show after turning down the offer back in 2016 when he still wanted to work as a football coach.
