Liverpool will now be without the services of Matt Konopinski, who has left the club to join England under Gareth Southgate.
The long-serving physio, who’s been with us for ten years, tweeted the news today.
After a memorable 10-years @LFC I'm excited to be embarking on a new challenge @FA. Huge thanks to staff and players both past and present for some incredible moments shared. Fortunate to have worked with some exceptional athletes/individuals.

As a result, James Pearce has claimed in the Echo that Academy physio Paul Squires will step up and work with the first-team in Konopinski’s place.
There’s been lots of comings and goings behind the scenes recently…
Over the summer, Zeljko Buvac departed with Pep Lijnders coming back from his manager’s role in Holland.
We’ve also got a new goalkeeping coach in Jack Robinson and a specialist throw-in coach in Thomas Gronnemark…
So far, Liverpool are unbeaten in the Premier League, having conceded only three goals altogether.
The front-three has arguably not clicked yet, but we now have a two week break before a theoretically easier run of fixtures.
