I'd imagine some reactions probably were understandable, but would suggest most reactions weren't.I find this shocking and fair play to him, he must have felt he had to or wanted to get this out in the open.
However, the reaction of fans to what really did look like he was playing like he couldn’t care less was totally understandable IMO.
No one in their right mind would by default think “player x is having a mare, he might have mental health issues” and nor should they, because the vast majority do not, those that do need and deserve help.
Most being offensive, vindictive, hurtful and just plain nasty, a million miles away from 'he's playing shite'.
What does inspire confidence is the thought that if Dele wants too, and does actually make his way back. The horrors he's faced (and faced down) won't be used as a target against him - all in the name of 'bantz'.
Not something I feel I could have written x years ago.
Oh and just in case posters think Sanctimonious Stat has saddled up, in defending George Osborne's right to have a peaceful wedding I did call him a """" about a dozen times - not exactly practising what I preach.
