Cheshire coroner Nicholas Rheinberg will open the inquest into the death of Wales football manager Gary Speed tomorrow (November 29)

The hearing will be formally opened at 3pm at Warrington Coroner′s Court in Warrington Town Hall.

Gary Speed was found dead, reportedly hanged, at his home in Saighton, near Chester.

It’s reported that his wife Louise discovered him at about 7am on Sunday November 27 and raised the alarm.

Speed, who was universally popular throughout football, played more than 500 times in the Premier League and had been manager of the Welsh national side since December last year.

Millions of tributes have been posted on news, sport and social network sites, as well as outside grounds like Elland Road, where he played for Leeds United in the 1990s.

Many are still baffled at his death which happened less than 24 hours after he appeared on BBC’s Football Focus programme.

He leaves behind wife Louise and two sons.
