'FA TREATED MOORE SHAMEFULLY'

England's 1966 World Cup-winning captain Bobby Moore was treated outrageously by the Football Association after he retired in 1978, claimed his former wife Tina. Moore, who skippered England to the epic 4-2 World Cup final victory over the then West Germany at Wembley only had three low profile managerial jobs after he hung up his boots. Tina, whose marriage with Moore produced two children but ended in divorce in 1986, said the FA could have done more for the English football legend, who died in 1993 aged just 51. "He was deeply depressed," she told weekly magazine The Radio Times. "He was very proud, and felt rejected, bewildered. It was outrageous how the FA treated him, a scandal. It's all very well that there are statues to him now, but that should have happened during his lifetime. Back then, he started to withdraw into himself."
