Prostate cancer has been discovered in former Manchester City manager Brian Horton. Brian Horton has confirmed he has prostate cancer. He was a renowned player for Brighton and Hove Albion, a team he eventually went back to manage, and also managed Manchester City in the 1990s.
Horton, 74, who underwent a checkup in April, was informed of his diagnosis a month later.
He had reportedly been advised by a buddy to get testing for prostate cancer due to his advanced age, and it was undoubtedly sound advice.
“They found that I had it, and it was very small,” Horton said to Johnny Cantor of BBC Radio Susse.
He played for Hednesford Town, Port Vale, Brighton, Luton Town, and Hull City throughout his playing career.
Raddy Antic’s game-winning goal four minutes from time on the final day of the 1982–83 season at Man City, which set off the iconic celebrations that included manager David Pleat bounding across the Maine Road turf in search of his captain, Horton, during his time at Luton, helped the Hatters stay up.
Between 1993 and 1995, he managed Hull, Brighton, Oxford United, Huddersfield Town, Port Vale, and Macclesfield Town in addition to Man City for two years.
