EX-ENGLAND ace Kenny Sansom has revealed he is making a strong recovery after being beaten up and left fighting for his life last year.
The former defender tweeted a photograph of himself in Arsenal and Crystal Palace tracksuits, on the 34th anniversary of him lifting the Littlewoods Cup with the Gunners in 1987.
Sansom spent months in hospital for treatment after the attack in May last year.
Taking to Twitter he said: “Hi everyone, I’m back. I’m feeling good.
“I’m walking okay, but I couldn’t play football.
“I know I’m improving, so that’s good news. I’m going for walks every day.
“My memory is getting better too. Thanks to Arsenal and Palace for the new clothes.”
In December last year Sansom, 62, was diagnosed with a brain disorder called Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome.
His symptoms include impaired memory, vision changes and ataxia – a degenerative disease of the nervous system that include slurred speech and incoordination.
