Roy Hodgson said that England will use a top sports psychiatrist to help their players in Brazil’s FIFA World Cup, and pay per head services believe that the team made a very good move by employing a shrink.
Price per head services learned that on Wednesday, before the friendly match with Denmark at Wembley, the manager confirmed that Dr Steve Peters, who worked closely with Team GB and Liverpool, will be on hand to offer his expertise in England’s bid for success later this year in South America.
Hodgson and pay per head services believe that the knowledge that Peters has of the game will make sure that he becomes a vital part of England’s backroom staff.
“He’s a famous man in that area who’s got a fantastic record of working in many different sports,” said Hodgson.
“We’re really happy. We wanted to make certain we got the man we wanted, who understands the footballing environment and joins us rather than someone who’s going to come in and lecture the players.
“We have to think that if there are any benefits out there available to us we have to take advantage of them.
“It’s when you get to a tournament phase that someone can play a part because we have the players for a longer time.
“People will say ‘Steve Peters is going to help them score five penalties out of five.’
And pay per head services can’t wait to see if this proves to be true.
“He won’t be able to help us do that, but what he might be able to do is help us be better mentally prepared for any challenges we may face.”
Captain Steven Gerrard, who worked at Liverpool with Peters, praised the doctor, and pay per head services know what a great addition he will be to England’s staff.
“He’s helped me an awful lot,” he said. “I’ve been seeing him for three years now, from when I had a big groin problem.
“I went to see him in a one-on-one situation and I really like the work he did.
