Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira admits he sought out a psychologist last season as he struggled on-loan with Atletico Madrid.
Torreira also lost his mother during the season.
“A year ago I had been working with a psychologist in Spain because when in the second year at Arsenal I played very little,” said Torreira.
“It was hard for me to really assimilate it because my life depends on football and when I don’t play I have a very bad time, I am in a very bad mood and I many things happen.
“That’s why I started with him and he was giving me a hand with that topic.
“Out there many years ago they told you ‘but how are you going to go to a psychologist, are you crazy?’ And today it is very important, especially for us who live a lot of situations being away from the family.”
