Son Heung-min (31) has once again shown his support for Dele Alli (27).

On the 13th, a discourse between Ali and English Premier League (EPL) legend Gary Neville (48) was released through the discourse program The overlap of British media ‘Sky Sports’. In it, Alli admitted for the first time that he was “addicted to sleeping pills and went to hospital to deal with mental health issues.”

In his early 20s, Alli was a sensational performer for the England national team and Tottenham Hotspur. But now, he’s struggling and is out of favor at Everton. Alli has now accepted responsibility for his personal problems and wants to help others who are struggling with similar issues.

According to the outlet, Ali said, “I had a family problem, so I resorted to alcohol and other stimulating things. I was always smiling when I woke up in the morning or in training, acting like I was happy and winning, but inside I was always losing the fight. Later, I became addicted to sleeping pills because I suffered from insomnia.”

“When I came back from fighting in Turkey, I was in a bad place mentally. I had to go to a rehabilitation center (hospital) for mental health. I was there for six weeks and Everton FC supported me 100% at the time and I’m very grateful,” he said.

“A lot of people tried to help me and asked me if I was okay and what happened. But I didn’t tell anyone because I wanted to deal with it myself. I came out of rehab three weeks ago and I hope to do well in the future.”메이저사이트

“But now (after the treatment) I am more mentally stable than ever and I am confident that I can be my old self,” Alli added.

Ali’s courageous confession was followed by support from his soccer teammates, including Harry Kane and Jan Vertonghen. “I had teammates like Kane, Dyer, and Son Heung-min that I could lean on, but I couldn’t open up to them about my problems,” Ali said, describing them as true friends. Son Heung-min chimed in.

“Aaliyah, your courageous words will help many people. I’m proud of my friend Aaliyah!” he wrote on social media on the 13th.

On the 27th, Son was asked about Ali again in an interview with global media outlet ESPN, and he showed his support again. “It really hurt me (to see the interview) because Ali is a close friend of mine. But Ali is a very strong person who I always trust. I will always believe in him. I believe he will come back as strong as he was before. I’m definitely rooting for him,” he added.
