New Chelsea left-back Ben Chilwell has revealed how far he has come, having suffered mental health at some point last year.

The 23-year-old has admitted that he needed support to get him through a trying period in 2019, and that it’s good for people to talk and share when things are going on in their lives.

“Last year I went through a period where my confidence took a hit and it affected me in my everyday life,” Chilwell shared on Twitter.

“I eventually spoke to someone about it and found it helped a lot.

“In football especially people don’t like to show weakness. But talking about difficulties or problems in your life with others is important.

“Everyone is going through something and hopefully someone has seen this tweet and feels they are able to talk to someone about something troubling them, where they felt they couldn’t before.”

Chilwell has proven that he was a good signing, as his life at Chelsea had started in good form.
