“He invited me to come and see him. He’d had some trouble in his life a few months ago and a friend of his sent him some of my videos and he said he’d watched those. Then he read one of my books and found it helpful, he wanted to talk,” said Peterson.
“I went out to his house, and we talked for about two hours. He showed me all his equipment for staying in tip-top condition, we talked about his companies. Mostly we talked about what he wanted in the future and some of the obstacles that he’s facing,” he added later.
Notably, the former Real Madrid and Juventus star is going through a very lean patch both in his personal and professional life. He has also had some harsh terms with United manager ten Hag who let him sit outside the field in the matches.
