Dietmar Hamann Racks Up Huge Gambling Debt

Dietmar Hamann Racks Up Huge Gambling Debt


Manchester City midfielder and German international Dietmar Hamann owes more than £600,000 in gambling debts, according to the Times.

Spread-betting company, Sporting Index are suing the 35-year-old for monies owed, plus an additional £26,400 in interest. The debt is alleged to have began way back in 2006 when the Times claim he bet on cricket, darts and American football.

The ex Liverpool, Newcastle and Bayern Munich stars contract expired at Eastlands at the end of the last campaign and no new offer is thought to be on the table.

Didi! Surely this can't be true! He's a very clever guy and I doubt he'd be so stupid as to get £600,000 into debt!

This is very sad news. A class act at his best and we have missed his calming presence at times this season.

Hamann was a class act... but he was Liverpool class act. At man City he was a good journeyman at the end of his career. If he wants any sympathy or help with a gambling problem he has to ask Liverpool for it.

Can't see this figure being true. Maybe he has some dept but not 600k - DH was on good money at City and it would be very hard to be that much in dept.

Probably explains his absence this season. Shocking news because he seemed so sensible.
