The doctor has left the club.
Liverpool have parted company with first team doctor Zaf Iqbal, reports the Liverpool Echo.
Dr Iqbal has been with the club for four-and-a-half years, but it’s understood he left his position on Wednesday.
Academy doctor Andy Massey has taken on the extra responsibilities created by the departure until a permanent successor is found.
Dr Iqbal was responsible for the medical treatment of all first team players, would conduct the medicals for new signings and was alongside Brendan Rodgers on the bench on match days.
He also worked closely with the sports science teams at Anfield to work out individual fitness regimes for Rodgers’ squad.
Dr Iqbal started his career in football with Leyton Orient, before working with the England youth teams and then joined Tottenham Hotspur as their first team doctor in 2008.
He spent two years with Spurs before being snapped up by us in 2010, citing the fact he had supported the club as a boy as the reason he chose to head to Merseyside.
Clearly the club will now be on the hunt for a new first team doctor, with Rodgers sure to want to employ somebody as soon as possible in order not to cause too much unnecessary disruption.
