He told Spanish newspaper ABC: “I had never thought about training the mind, really. When a player hears the word psychologist at the first, you are taken aback, but I realised that I needed help.”
“At first, I was a bit embarrassed to talk to the psychologist and tell him all my problems and with the help of everyone I have managed to recover happiness in football.”
“This summer I said to myself once or twice that I wanted to go to a team where I would be happy again, without pressure.”
“Now I am happier than ever at Chelsea and happier than ever in the national team even if it is not my best moment on the pitch.”
