Tom Brady‘s personal trainer, Alex Guerrero, says Patriots coach Bill Belichick “never evolved” in how he treated the star quarterback, which played a large role in Brady’s departure from New England in 2020 after 20 seasons.
“It was like Bill never really … I think his emotions or feelings never evolved with age,” Guerrero told the Boston Herald on Wednesday. “As Tom got into his late 30s or early 40s, I think Bill was still trying to treat him like that 20-year-old kid that he drafted. And all the players, I think, realized Tom was different. He’s older, so he should be treated differently. And all the players, none of them would have cared that he was treated differently.
“I think that was such a Bill thing. He never evolved. So you can’t treat someone who’s in his 40s like they’re 20. It doesn’t work.”
Guerrero’s comments come a week ahead of one fo the most anticipated games of the 2021 season, when Brady returns to Foxboro to take on his former team on Oct. 3.
