Dan believes that much of his good form is due to his mental state. As well as working with a psychologist, Dan got some friendly advice from his former colleague: "I saw Didier (Drogba) in Miami this summer. He said the strongest thing an individual footballer can have is the mental. It’s not about the tactical, it’s not about the technical, it’s not about the physical. If you believe in yourself, that will set you apart." Ironic that Didi would downplay the importance of physicality, eh?
