‘The football industry broke me’ – Marcus Maddison sends message after Bolton Wanderers loan ends


Marcus Maddison admitted he would assess his future in football after saying the game “finally broke” me after his loan spell at Bolton Wanderers ended.

The 27-year-old arrived at the University of Bolton stadium on loan from League One side Charlton Athletic in the January transfer window.

He has made 10 appearances for the Wanderers during that time, but today it was confirmed that Maddison’s loan had been cut short, following a deal with the player.

Maddison has struggled in recent months to move away from her young daughter and live in a hotel.

The decision was made for the winger to access additional support and the Wanderers are committed to helping Maddison get the help he needs off the pitch.

Maddison himself has now taken to social media for his say after his stint with the Whites which ended quickly.

The winger has had stints at Hull City, Charlton Athletic and Wanderers over the past year, after his time at Peterborough United ended in the summer of 2020.

And taking to Instagram, Maddison says that the “abuse, pressure and monotony” of playing professional football “comes after me.”

The winger will now assess whether he continues to play football in the future as he says “it just doesn’t bring me any joy”.

He thanked Wanderers manager Ian Evatt for his understanding and wished Bolton good luck as the club aim for promotion back to League One.

Maddison wrote: “Well the football industry has finally broken me.

“All the abuse, the pressures and the monotony of the past two years have just hit me.

“I’ve tried to fit in and be happy, but if I can’t be happy, on a winning team fighting for promotion, that’s clearly something deeper.

I go home to think that I want to play football more because it just doesn’t bring me any joy.

“I cannot thank Ian Evatt enough for his understanding and I wish @officialbwfc all the best for the final.”
