There are many facets of a player’s character that influence him or her to become a professional player.
One of the most overlooked ones is how strong players are mentally, as talent often gets them pretty high up the ladder, but it’s the mental toughness to bounce back from adversity that keeps them on top.
Gareth Bale hasn’t been anywhere near the player Tottenham thought they were going to get back for a minimum one-year loan, and talkSPORT’s Jamie O’Hara believes that is due to the player’s mental problems.

? “As a footballer, you are never 100% fit, you always have a hit.”
? “I had terrible injuries to my groin and when I came back I was constantly worried.”
