Former footballer makes compensation claim

Former West Ham player Dean Ashton is set to make a personal injury compensation claim against the Football Association (FA), following an ankle wound that ended his footballing career in 2009.

Ashton is claiming that the FA is responsible for vicarious liability for the football accident, which happened during a tackle in an England training session in 2006 between himself and Manchester City right winger Sean Wright Phillips. The tackle resulted in the 26-year-old being forced to end his professional sporting career.

The footballer has decided to pursue his compensation claim following the loss of a payout from his insurance provider. He had been trying to recover full fitness for three years after the injury, rather than giving up on his football career and retiring at the time of the accident.

In an interview with BBC Radio 5 Live, the footballer admitted that his battle has now become about walking properly again rather than trying to resume his sporting career following the personal injury.
