Liverpool have brought in specialist sports psychologist Lee Richardson.

Richardson, a psychologist who was also a professional footballer and a former manager of Chesterfield, arrived in July and has been brought in to consult with the squad as they bid to clinch the Premier League crown.

The 50-year-old has his own office at Melwood where he’s based for three days each week, according to The Athletic.

Reds manager Jurgen Klopp is known for his painstaking attention to detail as he bids to make every area of Liverpool Football Club perfect and turn his side into a well-oiled relentless winning machine.

His incredibly positive attitude to achieving any and all marginal gains can be proved with his appointments of Mona Nemmer, who is head of nutrition, and throw-in coach Thomas Gronnemark to name just two.

Now former Watford, Blackburn Rovers and Aberdeen midfielder Richardson has been added to the fold.

Richardson was recruited from Hull City by Liverpool’s medical rehabilitation and performance manager Phil Jacobsen.
