Premier League Throw Their Weight Behind Aaron Lennon

Recent news that Aaron Lennon is being treated for a stress-related illness has prompted key figures in football to have their say on the issue. There has been a huge show of support for Lennon with many saying it is a bigger problem than some realise and that wealth and fame are not a cure.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino says the club are in contact with Lennon's agent and his family and will do all they can to help. He said “It was someone who played here for nearly 10 years and of course Tottenham care about him. The players, the staff and everyone here cares about his situation.”
Players, managers and pundits have taken to Twitter to show their support including England and Leicester striker Jamie Vardy and some of Lennon's former teammates including Ledley King and Jermain Defoe.
Leon Osman spent two seasons at Everton with Lennon and he said “The problem is identifying the people who need help. Players tend to keep things to themselves. But things are changing within football and it's more accepted to come and get help if you need it and that has to be the way forward.”
