Chelsea striker, Timo Werner has come out to say that he really struggled with the media last season. He recently revealed that he really had to step away from the negative press to focus on his football.
According to him, he believes the most important thing in football is for a player to keep his mentality up and ensure his head is clean from outside.
Werner added that he’ll keep conditioning his mind to think only about his football while ignoring distractions.
His words, “I think the most important thing in football is to keep your mentality up, keep your head clean from outside.”
“The media is getting bigger and bigger nowadays. Of course, when you play good you are the hero everywhere, but when you play badly it is a totally different story.”
“You have to step away from that and concentrate on your football. It’s not always easy because you have media on your phone, media always around you which can bring something up you can see, but you have to be straight, in your own bubble, to think only about the football.”
“It’s also important to always have people around you who help you, and give you strength to go on. Also, in the good moments they can bring you down a little bit, so you don’t think you are the hero.”
“So they stop you in the good moments, and lift you up during the bad ones.”
