‘I’m relieved, because it’s clear it wasn’t a situation that was good for me or the club,’ Drinkwater told Sky Sports when he was asked about his Chelsea exit.
‘I’m angry because of how it’s gone and how I was treated – I’m not bitter about it, you can look back and say “what ifs” and have hindsight which is obviously huge. I think it was a long time coming.’

Drinkwater was asked if he has wasted the best years of his career, which he responded: ‘Yeah, it feels like “what have you thrown those five years away?”
‘If you’d stayed at Leicester, if you didn’t get injured and if the club treated you differently. They’re all ifs. It’s frustrating, 100 per cent. Don’t think I’m still not burning about how it’s gone. I still kick myself for it. But on the other side, am I going to keep kicking myself, because I can’t change it.
‘Can I help myself going forward? That’s why I went on loan, why I went to Aston Villa and Burnley on loan, which didn’t work, and going to Turkey at the age of 30 – I never thought I’d do that.
‘It’s also the reason I dropped down to the Championship. I’ve been trying to do the right things. As I’ve tried doing them, something’s gone wrong.’
Drinkwater reveals he sought out therapy as a result of his Chelsea struggles and denied that he had an easy life not playing every week.
‘That’s not true,’ he said when asked if he lived the high life on big wages and rarely training. ‘”Living the life” lasts about two weeks. You figure out you’re not involved in games, only training, so I could go out with the lads, I’m single, it’s great, I can do all this. I was loving it, but in the background, there’s always things that burn away.
‘And as a person, if you’re not open enough to speak to the right people, it chews away at you. I didn’t learn that until further down the line. I was always like “I’m a big strong bloke, I can deal with this”.’
And along with multiple losses in his family, Drinkwater admits he was suffering from mental health issues at the time.
‘I was [suffering with mental health issues in 2019]. My nan and grandad passed, dad got diagnosed with Leukaemia, I lost my dog and was drink driving, which is just not me. I made a big mistake. I was also fighting for my son, which was going on constantly and takes its toll.
‘When football is going well, everything else seems easier to deal with, but when this isn’t going so well, everything seems so heavy. I definitely think that’s the lowest I’d been.’
When asked if he received help, he said: ‘I didn’t think I was depressed, but I saw the sports psychologist and if I hadn’t, I definitely think it could’ve gone that way because I was just fighting and fighting, and it wasn’t helping anybody.’JAMB Result
