Mooy - relegation stress was 'not healthy'

13th June 2018, 10:19 by Simon Barlow

Aaron Mooy says the feelings he experienced during Huddersfield's survival bid were so intense it was "like being on drugs."

The Australia international, who set up Laurent Depoitre for the goal which kept the Terriers up in the game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last month, has been talking about the stress and pressure Town's players felt during the club's first-ever Premier League campaign.

He told the Sydney Morning Herald: “It’s really dramatic. If you lose against a team around you it’s the end of the world.

“The fans think it’s the end of the world, you feel down, feel bad, but if you win it’s the opposite, it's amazing. You have to try and balance it out a bit. It's not healthy. Basically [it’s like being] on drugs."

Mooy, who has been training with the Socceroos' World Cup squad in Russia, believes the nerve-wracking experience he and the rest of David Wagner's squad went through will make for a stronger dressing-room mentality this coming season.

“It’s just so intense but it makes you a stronger person. That’s where you want to be – one of the best leagues in the world, if not the best league, and that’s what it takes,” he added.
