The pair take to Jose Mourinho’s dugout seat in the 62,303-capacity stadium, where they discuss the significance of a player’s state of mind and mental strength in being a determining factor to their success on the pitch.
In the episode, Jose Mourinho shows David Beckham the level of detail that has gone into designing the stadium to ensure the players are equipped with the best facilities, before stepping onto the pitch.
David Beckham said: “I am grateful to AIA for giving me the opportunity to learn about Spurs’ pioneering approach to player health and wellness and to get insight from a manager as experienced and successful as Jose was a real privilege. There is a lot of science and new thinking in the game since I was a player but it’s clear that simple things like a solid routine and great sleep are still really important. I am proud to partner with AIA and to see first-hand their commitment to supporting people to live healthier lives”
