Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo approached clinical Psychologist Jordan Peterson for therapy after watching his Youtube videos.
Peterson, who is forefront of fighting for the boychild, revealed that his recent meeting with Ronaldo was about helping him overcome depression and face retirement with his chin up.
Jordan was just a guest on Piers Morgan’s show and he was asked by the British presenter about his visit to Ronaldo. In the conversation, Piers revealed that Cristiano took therapy and seemed in much better shape after meeting with Jordan.
But Peterson revealed many more details about their encounter. This is what Jordan said to Piers Morgan during their interview: “That’s what happens when you hang out with reprobate like me. 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. 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.”
The meeting lasted two hours, with Ronaldo showing Peterson his lifestyle for half an hour, before an hour and half long conservation.
Ronaldo’s entry was quite celebrated in Manchester United but the all-time leading goal scorer in the history of UEFA Champions League has become a bench warmer under manager Erik ten Hag.
His meeting with the Petterson seemed to have rejuvenated him according to Mogan.
“It seemed to me, talking to him in the last couple of days after he saw you, he’s in a much better place,” Morgan told Peterson.
He then responded: “That’s what happens when you hang out with reprobate like me.”
Peterson is a Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and professor. He has gained a lot of popularity over the past few years for his views on cultural and political issues, often described as conservative.
