#SayItNow: Archie Thompson
Former Aussie soccer star Archie Thompson has given thanks to brother for his support during a difficult stage in Thompson’s career.
Speaking with Denis Walter for #SayItNow week, Thompson said making the transition from professional athlete to his current career was tough.
“I think being a man we sort of don’t tend to share our feelings very well, so this was a good opportunity to do so,” Thompson said.
“I thought of my brother straight away.
“I was coming into a different stage of my career; it’s hard to say how you’re actually feeling.
“I’m very thankful my brother has been there.”
Thompson also noted the importance of the #SayItNow campaign and how positive it was to see others reaching out.
“It’s great you’ve got emails of people there trying to reach out after so long,” he told Denis.
