I had depression last season - Danny Rose

Tottenham defender Danny Rose has revealed last season was tough for him because of many reasons which also led to depression.

In an interview, Rose let out all that happened last season and how he had to see a psychologist in other to find a solution to his troubles.

'It's no secret that I've been through a testing time at Tottenham this season,' he said

'It led to me seeing a psychologist and I was diagnosed with depression, which nobody knows about. I haven't told my mum or my dad, and they are probably going to be really angry reading this, but I've kept it to myself until now.'

'My uncle killed himself in the middle of my rehab, and that triggered the depression as well,' he added

'Off the field, there have been other incidents. Back home in August my mum was racially abused in Doncaster. She was very angry and upset about it, and then someone came to the house and nearly shot my brother in the face, a gun was fired at my house.'

'England has been my salvation and I can't thank the manager and the medical staff enough. It was really hard, and being referred to a doctor and psychologist  by the Spurs club doctor helped me massively to cope.'

Danny Rose is currently with the England  squad for the 2018  World Cup and he will look to put all the bad memories of last season behind and hope for a better outing in Russia.
