Concerns have been raised over fallen AFL star Ben Cousins as West Coast confirm he is no longer working at the club and hasn’t been seen for at least a month.
Since being released from jail early this year, Cousins had been working in a community and game development role at the Eagles but they have confirmed Cousins is no longer involved at the club.
The concerns were initially reported by Tom Morris from Fox Footy but have since been confirmed by West Coast CEO Trevor Nisbett who said Cousins had “finished up” at the club.
The 2005 Brownlow medallist spent 10 months in prison last year for stalking, breaching the retraining order held against him by his former partner and other drug related charges.
When arrested, it is believed that eight grams of methamphetamine were found in Cousin’s possession and that he had attempted to call his ex-partner 2000 times between October 2016 and February 2017.
The job at the Eagles was part of the 39-year-old’s parole conditions along with random urinalysis, attending counselling and not changing his address without approval from authorities.
Cousins has been suffering from substance abuse issues since 2007.
