Everton’s Calvert-Levin says ‘conversation saved my life’ during injured season | Everton


The Everton Striker Dominique Calvert-Levin has shown that this season “has gone through some of the hardest times” in his career and life, and said “the conversation saved my life”.

Calvert-Levin struggled with injuries in the 2021-22 campaign, and his club nearly flew to the Premier League. The English International has opened up on social media, urging young people not to stifle emotions.

“Personally, I’ve had to dig deep inside myself this season, and I’ve been through some of the hardest times in my career and life to date,” the 25-year-old posted on Instagram. “Love and support helped me get through.”

He continued: “One thing I’ve learned this season is that everyone in every area of ​​life is fighting in battles you know nothing about, and there’s no shame in finding someone to talk to and be open and honest with yourself about what you really feel.

“To all young kings who suppress emotions, I advise you to talk, with a friend, family member or someone who listens, the conversation saved my life.

“It will make you realize that things are never as bad as they seem, and you will find that the paradox of true strength is to confront your weaknesses.”

Calvert-Levin missed part of the season due to injury and was limited to just 17 Premier League appearances for Toffee.
