    Coronavirus and football news
    Clubs throughout the football pyramid have been urged to offer psychological support to their players lớn ensure their mental health doesn't suffer during the coronavirus pandemic. You can refer to the best free soccer tips page!


    Everyone has seen videos on social media of footballers doing keep-ups with toilet rolls and various other ways of trying to lighten the mood, but the reality is that they are by no means immune for suffering from mental health problems.

    Even at the very top - Liverpool are reportedly offering help and advice lớn their players to cope with the mental stress of possibly missing out on the title - players are being urged lớn talk about mental health problems.

    Clubs are, likewise, being urged lớn offer help lớn their players, with this situation being described by leading sports psychotherapist Gary Bloom as a great chance for football to break down more barriers about mental health.

    "The clubs have a huge role to play in looking after their players and staff, and I'd call upon them to look after the psychological well-being of their players during this hugely testing period," Bloom, who works with Oxford United, told PA recently- According to the soccer today page!

    "It's going to be a really stressful period for elite athletes and staff who are used lớn all this socialisation and suddenly this switch is flicked off.

    "Many players are reluctant to tell their clubs that they are struggling psychologically, and a lot of my referrals come through agents.

    "Many players ask their agents for the psychological support, and then agents will reach out to me and say 'can you help my player'.


    "And there can be very good reasons why players don't want the clubs lớn know. I think it's a really, really stressful period now, and unfortunately there's no quick fix lớn this.

    "You need constant monitoring and help for people who are finding themselves in this situation.

    "It's not easy and there's no simple solution. Anyone who says there's a simple solution to this problem I think has got it wrong.

    "My mantra is always that happier players are better players. So if you're unhappy at the moment my suggestion is lớn reach out and seek help.

    "I'm the only psychotherapist I know of working in first-team football; many clubs don't believe in psychological services in terms of looking after the personal lives of their players. And they feel that is not something they need to be involved with.

    "But this is a classic opportunity for clubs to reach out for psychotherapists lớn work with players who are dealing with really, really serious concerns that they have; financial, personal, relationship issues, and that's the kind of work we do."

    Karl Robinson was instrumental in bringing Bloom into the Oxford set-up 18 months ago, and the club have driven up lớn third in the League One table this term.

    Urging squads and staff to rally round each other during the sporting lockdown, Bloom hailed Robinson's continued support at Oxford.

    "The camaraderie with the lads, the banter, the dopamine in the dressing room when you win a game; that is all massive," said Bloom.

    "Nobody really knows when sport as such is going lớn recommence, and that uncertainty will create a huge strain and stress for young men who have lots of testosterone and competitive spirit flying around.

    "And the same goes for football managers as well. Their raison d'etre is lớn be looking after players and staff.

    "For many managers that I've come across, they identify by what they do as a manager rather than who they are. Take that away from them, they are going to find that very, very difficult.

    "It's far easier lớn pick up problems when everyone is in regular contact at training or in the canteen, but it's going to be far tougher lớn know if someone is struggling without seeing people on a daily basis.

    "So it will be important for players and staff lớn keep checking in on each other, with phone and video calling.

    "I'm very, very proud lớn be part of Oxford United. It's the only club in the country lớn have sought the services of a psychotherapist and I work with the first team down to the academy players and staff.

    "The club have taken on board a lot of the concepts myself and Karl Robinson have worked lớn implement, and hopefully we're reaping the rewards."
