Snooker star Ronnie O’ Sullivan has said that the psychiatrist who saved his career can help Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.
Dr Steve Peters was hired by Liverpool in November 2012 after he previously worked with O’ Sullivan and Sir Chris Hoy.
Suarez has been in hot water in recent weeks, and has just started a ten game ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic during Liverpool’s 2-2 draw against Chelsea a few weeks ago.
O’ Sullivan, currently defending his World Snooker Championships crown, branded the Suarez incident “a moment of madness” and says that he understands the Uruguayan.
O’Sullivan told the Daily Telegraph: “I understand what Suarez did, I totally get it. It’s like me walking out against Stephen Hendry.
“It’s a moment of madness and you think: ‘Wow, what have I done?’
“Things like that can be avoided. It’s about prevention.”
O’Sullivan began working with Dr Peters in April 2011, and has credited him with changing his snooker and life.
The Rocket believes that Liverpool will win the Premier League title in the next few seasons, if they continue to work with Peters, and stick with manager Brendan Rodgers.
O’Sullivan added: “If I could afford to have Steve 24/7, then I would. But if Liverpool can have him there for four or five years then they’ll win the Premier League.
“I have no doubt about it. It’s not a quick fix with Steve, but if Liverpool stick with him and Brendan Rodgers, they’ll win the title. I have no doubt.”
