Thompson further added that it is the toughest part of the season, as he has always worked hard with the team. Right now, he is focusing on his recovery and making sure an injury so serious does not repeat. Thompson revealed that he wants to play at a 'high level' till he is in his late 30s. Though we have not seen a lot of Thompson this season, he claims that he has definitely worked a lot.
