But now Jurgen Klopp and Co are going all out to wrestle the trophy back from Manchester City.

And they’ve employed adventurer and journalist Fogle to boost the players’ ‘mind control & mental agility under pressure’.

Sharing the story on Instagram, Fogle wrote: “One of the most fascinating jobs I have ever done was to work with Jurgen Klopp and the Liverpool squad.

“I helped them with their mind control and mental agility under pressure through the context of my own expeditions and adventure.

“Already great footballers, the challenge was how to keep on top of their game when it is not one single mountain, but a whole mountain range that you have to climb each season.

“Consistency in the face of expectation and pressure.”


Fogle continued by admitting it was his first foray into football, adding: “I have to admit I had always been a troglodyte when it came to football, neither playing nor supporting.

“But time spent with the squad changed my attitude and my perspective.

“Spending time with Liverpool FC gave me a better understanding of the beautiful game and a new found respect for footballers and the dedication to their sport.

“It is like a military exercise to get the squad through each season with a an army of staff helping in the wings.

“It is a war of attrition as the season progresses and a battle of mind over matter.”

Fogle continued by revealing he is ‘in awe of Klopp’s leadership skills’ – claiming his positive attitude has been integral to Liverpool’s success since he took over from Brendan Rodgers in 2015.

He added: “Confidence and skill to own their narrative. This is where a great manager like Jurgen Klopp really shines.

“Attitude comes from the top. A positive mindset is key to success. Jurgen glows with optimism.

“His smile is infectious. He is a carrot not a stick. I am in awe of his leadership skills.

“Let the background noise win and it’s the slippery slope to relegation.

“Focus on the task at hand and silence the inner voice and you’re halfway there. Control your own narrative.

“Six wins and two draws so far. Now only 36 games to go.

“I am now a very proud Liverpool supporter and I have some great new friends.

“You’ll never walk alone. Love, peace and goals.”
