NRL Legend Greg Inglis Enters Rehab Facility
Just six weeks after retiring from NRL football, Greg Inglis will be treated for alcohol and depression issues.
His former club, the South Sydney Rabbitohs released a very brief statement, which read:
Rabbitohs and Souths Cares ambassador Greg Inglis has entered a facility to undergo treatment to assist with and support his mental health.
On behalf of Greg and his family, we ask the media and the public to respect their privacy.
No further comment will be made by the Rabbitohs, Greg, his management or his family at this time.
While, the club statement was devoid of detail, Inglis' mental health battles in the past have been well documented, and it is also known that he has been struggling with life post-football, not turning up to work at the Rabbitohs on several occasions in the past month.
NRL CEO Todd Greenberg said on Thursday night that he was aware Inglis had been struggling.
"I’m aware of some of the issues that he’s facing and we’re in contact with him and the club," Greenberg said.
"He’s got a lot of people around him, including all of us at the NRL."
