Manchester United should hire Liverpool psychiatrist Dr Steve Peters if they are to transform themselves back into contenders for the Premier League title, at least that is the opinion of snooker superstar Ronnie O’Sullivan, with whom he has worked extensively.
Liverpool have employed the services of Peters since November 2012 and, over the course of that period, have established themselves back in the coveted Champions League places, while they are now in pole position to clinch a first league title since 1990.
Steven Gerrard has publicly praised the work of Peters, who has also spent time British Cycling and the British team at the 2012 Olympics, while a recommendation from the Liverpool captain has also seen him recruited to work on Roy Hodgson’s staff with the England team.
So good is Peters, claims O’Sullivan, that he claims the well-regarded psychiatrist would be the best signing Manchester United manager David Moyes could make as he looks to bring new recruits to Old Trafford.
O’Sullivan, a famously temperamental character who was able to win back-to-back world titles after working with Peters, believes the in-demand sports doctor has played a key role in the recent success enjoyed by Liverpool, and would be able to do the same at Manchester United.
“Best signing man utd can make Is steve peters. They will win league again. Got no doubt,” O’Sullivan tweeted.
“He's working miracles at Liverpool mans a genius . Never worked with some one so good and skilful.”
