In an interview with Piers Morgan, Peterson described his meeting with the Portuguese, and why they met in the first place. Mental health and Ronaldo’s future dominated the conversation
Why did Cristiano Ronaldo meet Jordan Peterson?
Peterson claims that Ronaldo invited him to his house “to come and see him”, citing some personal problems in his life. A friend of Ronaldo’s has recommended Peterson to him. Peterson’s material had seemingly impressed Cristiano. He liked his videos and read his book and found these very helpful, called the Canadian for a meeting.
The meeting lasted two hours, with Ronaldo showing Peterson his lifestyle for half an hour, before an hour and half long conservation.
What was the interaction between CR7 and Peterson like?
Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the fittest men on the planet. He showed Peterson how he has managed to keep himself so fit all these years. They then spoke about Cristiano’s future. An hour and a half-long conversation took place between him and Ronaldo.
“Mostly we talked about what he wanted in the future and some of the obstacles that he’s facing while pursuing that. So we had a strategic conversation I would say about on those topics for about 90 minutes”, he said.
Piers Morgan jokingly asked if Peterson felt he was like a Ted Lasso character that was missing from Ronaldo’s life. “Well, that’s what it felt like,” Peterson replied. “We talked about how he wanted his career to end, and in the most graceful way possible.”
