As a club, we have been fairly lucky with the mental health of players needing time away from football(which we are publicly aware of). From memory this is the first time a player has asked for time away because of mental health issues.
It’s seriously laughable reading comments from people making outlandish statements about someone’s ability to work & train effectively with mental illness. Scientific evidence will confirm that Mental illness effects physical wellbeing, and physical wellbeing effects mental wellness. It’s a cycle.
I don’t think its appropriate to be talking about list management issues right here, right now.
