What They're Saying: Jack Harrison

"Being in New York, I'd always had positive feedback, even if I played badly. I grew up in the U.S. as well, so all my teammates that I'd been with had always been encouraging and that's the U.S. mentality of coping with sports and stuff. But once I came here, I was on social media and some of the things you see, it can be quite ruthless. I had to delete Twitter, just too many people coming at me. That was something new for me. I tried to build mental strength to work through that. It was tough, but it only makes you stronger as a player."

-- Jack Harrison on the adjustment of moving from NYCFC, where he started his pro career, to his native England, where he started out with a poor first six months on loan at Middlesbrough. He is now at Leeds United, where he has spent the last two seasons. (ESPN FC)
