Behind the Badge: The science and detail behind an LFC player’s nutrition

Mona Nemmer

15th July 2017

Whenever an item of food or drink passes a Liverpool player’s lips during the club’s upcoming trip to Hong Kong, it will mark the culmination of months of work from Mona Nemmer and her team.

Preparations for the 2017-18 campaign will step up this weekend as the Reds’ senior squad jet out to Asia in order to contest friendly fixtures against two of their Premier League rivals.

And, while they are out there, it up to the club’s head of nutrition to ensure that Jürgen Klopp’s charges are sufficiently fuelled to lay the foundations for a successful season.

It is an undertaking that requires substantial planning and remarkable attention to detail.

Nemmer explains: “We start quite early planning these things. As soon as we got the confirmation of where we were going, which was three to four months ago, we started thinking about approaching it.

“This year, it’s really special going to Hong Kong, which is a totally different culture from a food point of view,” she adds.

“There are so many healthy things we can include in our players’ nutrition, which makes it really interesting for them as well.

“Also, we have little things we like to pay attention to – like different countries have different habits, we try to focus on every details to avoid any inconvenience and to provide the same standard.”

The benefits of this extra preparation are evident in the detail of the menu the squad will pick from, with an emphasis on variety and meals themed on local cuisine ensuring eating the right foods isn’t a chore for the players.
