England hires psychiatrist for World Cup
Question of the Day
LONDON (AP) - In a bid to boost his team’s mental strength at the World Cup, England coach Roy Hodgson said Tuesday he has hired a psychiatrist.
“A very famous man in that area,” Hodgson said. “He has a great CV (curriculum vitae) of working in different sports and has been doing some work with Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers.”
Peters‘ methods also seemed to work for the England rugby team, which reached the 2007 World Cup final. His list of clients also includes five-time world snooker champion Ronnie O’Sullivan and cycling’s Team Sky, which produced two Tour de France champions.
“He has helped me with my mental preparation and injuries, and I’ve played my most consistent form for Liverpool and England since seeing Steve,” Gerrard said. “I feel he can help the players if the players buy into what he is trying to do. He can’t help you do a (Johan) Cruyff turn or a 40-yard pass better, but he can help you learn what goes off inside your head.”
