Inter striker Lautaro Martinez admits he had to ‘consult a psychologist’ to collect fewer yellow cards and reveals where he’d like to end his career.
The Argentinean striker spoke at a press conference from the training camp of Club Atletico Liniers, his boyhood club, where he has returned for some training sessions this week.
“I am at a very important stage of my career, and this year I’ve felt something I hadn’t known before,” Lautaro said, as quoted by Tuttomercatoweb.
“I am happy and satisfied with my career, everything I do at Inter is helping me with the national team. I am improving physically, I’ve trained carefully to get into peak shape,” he continued.
“It was more complicated to work on my mentality. Becoming a father has helped me to solve many things off the pitch. A psychologist has helped me to protest less and collect fewer yellow cards.
“Check the stats and you can see I’ve improved. A new season is on the horizon and so is the 2022 World Cup.”
The Argentina Copa America winner revealed he’d like to return to his former club at the end of his career.
“I’d like to end my career at Liniers, I’ll try to convince my wife to return to Bahia Blanca, I hope I can play again for Liniers or Racing one day, but it’s difficult to make promises in football,” he concluded.
