What we need is a manager that can manage/ coach players and players that can play football. Where does psychologists fit into football. Is this a new age thing. The great players from the past would never need one to play the game.
Tennis players have been doing this for god knows how long, golf players do it, and part of a football managers job is to coach.
Sports psychology isn't laying on a couch talking about your parents, it can be as simple as reinforcing good things and changing negative ones.
If it gets an extra 2% out of any player it pretty much pays for itself.
Oh and if you are interested in coaching look at the difference between Sir Clive Woodward and Eddie Jones, they both get results but in a different way. So one approach doesn't always work.
