<!-- end left side bar --> <!-- story content : start --> IN THE suicide note to his wife, father and close friends, Mr Teo Kok Hun, 33, confessed his addiction to football gambling. The 33-year-old driver, also known as Zhang Guohan, admitted that this was the main reason why he was always short of money. His favourite football team was Liverpool and he was wearing the club's red jersey when he hanged himself in the bathroom of his four-room flat in Tampines on Oct 26. His 30-year-old wife, a travel agent, found his body at 7.30pm, when she returned home from work. State Coroner Victor Yeo, on Tuesday, returned a verdict of suicide. Strangely, Mr Teo's death came a day after Liverpool defeated archenemy Manchester United, after a series of four successful defeats to other teams.
