Play • 1 hr 4 min

Welcome back to The Perfect Athlete, and to a new series of incredible conversations and tips for performing at your peak.

With 34 successful caps for England, a Premier League title and Champions League medal to his name, Adam Lallana has proven himself an invaluable midfield talent at Southampton, Liverpool, and now Brighton & Hove Albion.   

He’s played with, and against, some of the world’s most talented footballers, picking up on the physical and mental training regimes that kept Jurgen Klopp’s squad on top of their game for one of the team’s best seasons in years.

Adam joins me for series 2 of The Perfect Athlete as we learn how his parents applied the perfect amount of pressure & unconditional support in his early years, how massively a game is affected by individual & team mentality, and what the future holds for Adam with his move to Brighton.
