Former English soccer player and now manager of Nottingham Forest, Stuart Pearce is worried he may develop cancer after possibly being exposed to asbestos minerals as an electrician apprentice in his youth, the Mirror reported on January 28.
Pearce, 52, reportedly worked as an electrician apprentice in London during the 80’s before he became a professional soccer player. The former England star claimed was never informed about asbestos hazards in the buildings where he worked for several years. Though he was told to wear safety boots and hats in the workplace, Pearce said he was never warned about asbestos hazards. Pearce, who now supports the “Every Job Beware Asbestos” campaign, further stated that even now, people are unaware of asbestos exposure risks.
