As a professional athlete, it's surprising that a player would want to get injured and be substituted halfway through a match. Recently, West Ham United player Antonio revealed that he had experienced psychological issues for a period of time, during which he grew to dislike football. He even felt repulsed by the idea of playing. So, why would a professional athlete end up like this?

In a recent interview, Antonio shared his struggle with psychological issues, admitting that he had gone through a phase where he suddenly developed a strong aversion to football. He even contemplated faking an injury to be substituted during matches. Last year, after winning the Europa League championship with West Ham United, Antonio shared his feelings at the time. While his teammates were celebrating wildly, some even partying until late into the night, Antonio admitted that he didn't feel excited about the victory. Instead, after boarding the bus back to the hotel, he immediately fell asleep.

It took Antonio several days to realize that he had indeed won the championship with his team. However, during that period, he didn't find joy in football because external factors off the pitch were weighing him down. He was going through a divorce with his wife, which caused him immense pain and subsequently affected his performance on the field.

Antonio also revealed that during that time, his mental state was really unhealthy. Even if his team won, he would blame himself if he didn't perform well individually. It was only with the help of a therapist that he was able to successfully address his psychological issues. That's why he decided to share his experience in the interview. Antonio stated that he is in a good state now. Despite being 33 years old, he believes he can continue playing for another three years.

The mental state of a player is indeed crucial. Hopefully, he can find solace on the field despite his emotional struggles. If he continues to harbor disdain for football, early retirement might not be a bad option for him.

This brother seems to have developed depression, which can truly be mentally and physically debilitating. Many people worldwide suffer from this illness every year. Modern life's pressures are immense, and setbacks can easily lead one down this path. It's evident that this brother is experiencing such struggles. As a professional player, the pressure on him is substantial, especially as a forward. Forwards rely on strong performances to boost their confidence and dread goal droughts, adding to their stress. Hence, the likelihood of developing mental illness is higher. Antonio appears to be a sensitive player, and his divorce has significantly impacted his mood, exacerbating his depression and affecting his on-field performance. Poor performance further intensifies his pressure, creating a vicious cycle. Without proper psychological treatment, the situation only worsens. Fortunately, Antonio has overcome his struggles and found a new lease on life. At 33, with limited years left in his career, he should strive for a couple more years and enjoy retirement free from pressure, pursuing whatever he desires without worrying about performance. However, post-retirement, he should avoid coaching, as it can be even more psychologically torturous than playing.

It's depression indeed. Surprisingly, even athletes can be troubled by personal matters like relationships. Despite sports being a distraction, football being his career might have compounded the issue, especially with the added stress of divorce. It's like a modern ailment. Thankfully, seeking medical help led to successful treatment.

Actually, everyone has their weaknesses, even those who appear strong in your eyes. Undoubtedly, Antonio is such a person. On the field, he's unstoppable for West Ham United, and all these honors are earned through countless training sessions. There are no geniuses in the world, it's all about hard work and sweat. But have you ever thought about the sacrifices behind those training sessions? They consume not only his time but also precious moments with his family, particularly his wife. When his wife complains, we can understand her feelings. After all, when a woman marries you, she expects care and warmth from her husband. But due to rigorous training, Antonio spends less time with his family, leaving his wife feeling neglected. Especially with his guilt towards his wife, when she mentioned divorce, what was he thinking? He may have been pondering the sacrifices he made for the family, working hard and earning money, solely responsible for all expenses, yet his wife demands divorce due to lack of time. How unjust is that? Honestly, as an ordinary man, working hard to provide a comfortable life for his family, isn't that what it's all about? To ensure his wife has pocket money, his children attend better schools, and his parents receive proper medical care when they're ill. Humans are ultimately emotional beings, with family emotions being the most significant. The emotional bond with one's wife is particularly special because, in the end, it's the old couple who spend their lives together. Imagine, even if the team won the championship, could Antonio truly enjoy the victory banquet? Would he not be overwhelmed with emotion during the ceremony? I believe all players and coaches would understand Antonio's situation. Let's hope Antonio can overcome this shadow, face his life, have a heartfelt conversation with his wife, and express his desire to continue living together. Let's not allow his wife to leave, even if it means sacrificing his remaining professional career.
