The club have confirmed that Dr Ryland Morgans has left his role as head of fitness and conditioning. He had been at the club for four years.
He joined in October 2012 after being headhunted by our former boss Brendan Rodgers. It is thought that he will continue in his role as Chris Coleman’s head of fitness for the Welsh national side.
“This has been an extremely difficult decision to reach,” he said. “But I feel now is the right time to move on and pursue a new challenge. I will always be grateful to Brendan Rodgers for giving me the opportunity to work at the highest club level of the game alongside some of the biggest figures in the industry. (via official site)
“There have been some amazing experiences along the way and to serve a club of this stature is an honour and a privilege I will never forget. However, professionally, it is time to seek a new challenge.
“Finally, I would like to thank the club and Ian Ayre for their support during my time and wish Jürgen Klopp, the staff at Melwood and the supporters all the best for the future and every success for the remainder of the season.”
Presumably Klopp, who decided to keep on Dr Morgans when he first arrived at the club, will now bring in his own man.
The German was quick to pay tribute to him after learning the news:
“Ryland is a fantastic professional and a really good guy. Wherever he works next, they will be extremely fortunate to have someone of his capabilities. We all respect his decision and thank him for the work he has done, not just since we arrived, but before that also.”
Thank you and good luck, Ryland!
