The FAI, PFA and Stoke have all offered their support to McClean and his family this week
And McClean told Off The Ball had the support of his playing colleagues.
"I've been quite critical in the past about my team mates not coming out and supporting me, but this time I can't, because they've been absolutely brilliant.
"They've come out publicly and they've supported me now, and I've told them individually but they have no idea what their support means not just to me, but my family.
"And not just for me, but now is the time for them to come out and speak about their own abuse."
