BBC Sport - Philip Mulryne: From Premier League to priesthood

From Premier League to priesthood

Former Manchester United and Northern Ireland footballer Philip Mulryne explains why he quit football to become a Catholic priest.

"I started to feel there was a bit of a void there, an emptiness, in the way I was living my life," says the 39-year-old Belfast man, who was ordained earlier this month.

Mulryne made one appearance in the then Premiership for Manchester United and had another top-flight season with Norwich City before going on to play for several other clubs.
