    Former Wales winger Mickey Thomas has been diagnosed with stomach cancer.

    The 64-year-old will begin treatment on Monday after receiving the diagnosis in January.

    A crowdfunding page which has been set up to help Thomas, which says "he is currently facing the biggest battle".

    Thomas won 51 caps for Wales and spent three years at Manchester United, from 1978-1981, and nine seasons with Wrexham across two spells, making his final appearance in 1993, aged 38.

    He famously scored the equaliser with a superb free-kick when the Welsh club, then of the fourth tier, knocked out league champions Arsenal in the 1992 FA Cup third round.

    He has been a co-commentator on Manchester United games on local radio in recent years.

    "Still such a presence around Old Trafford and very much a part of the United family, Mickey is one of the most loveable guys you could meet," the funding page adds.

    "He shouldn't be worrying about money during this tough time.

    "We want his focus to be on beating this awful disease and getting back with us all as soon as possible."

    During his 22-year playing career, Thomas also played for Everton, Brighton, Stoke, Chelsea, West Bromwich Albion, Derby, Shrewsbury and Leeds.

    I wish him or the best in his battle, lost a dear friend a few years ago to this and only yesterday learnt my daughter in law’s 80 year grandfather had inoperable stomach cancer

    You mean put him up in a club owned house?
    Mickey could pay for the treatment himself printing off some of those dodgy fivers in his wallet ;)

    Hope they catch the cancer in its early days and he gets the all clear asap

    Don’t wish ill health on anyone especially as serious as cancer. Hope it’s caught early and he gets it sorted

    Met him quite a few times and a right character and a really really nice bloke. Fingers crossed he can beat it and fight through what sounds like a horrific set of treatments.
