The 28-year-old Frenchman said his every whim was taken care of by the club's staff to ensure he can concentrate on his game.

You can ask Barry anything. When you have a problem with your car, the Jacuzzi or the light, he is there.

'When you see people like this you want to make them happy and win.'

Mr Moorhouse delights in his role, and was quoted saying: "Some people describe me as a Jim'll Fix It.'

A club source told the Sun newspaper: "Barry and his team can arrange virtually anything - new car, new house, you name it.

"The manager wants players to concentrate on football, but some requests are ridiculous. They're pampered, they live in a bubble.

"Some wouldn't know how to change a lightbulb. And if Wags need something they are helped too. They're all treated better than the Royal Family."
