I can recall him being fine doing a few radio spots about his career on Talksport, then all of a sudden he went downhill quite unexpected.

R. I. P. Franky Wortho - Football Genius in the same mold as George Best.

I spent my best days watching the best team I had seen at Leicester run by Jimmy Bloomfield,  a magical line up of players who loved playing and partying and up front was Frank Worthington, a legend on and off the pitch.  He will no doubt be doing the same elsewhere.  We will miss him.

After leaving pro football, I'm sure he was player manager at Hinckley Town FC or a Leics Senior League Club.
