Arsenal may have found a replacement for their former head of physiotherapy, Chris Morgan, who returned to Liverpool this summer.
Morgan had been at Arsenal for two years before making the return to Merseyside, where he had previously spent ten years.
The Gunners have now moved to replace him and The Athletic claims that they will poach PSG’s, Bruno Mazziotti.
Mazziotti is an acquaintance of Edu after they both worked at Brazilian side, Corinthians and the Brazilian national team.
He has been with the French side for the last two years and he will now look to continue his career at the Emirates with Arsenal.
The report claims that he is now working towards ending his stay at the French champions to make the move to Arsenal.
He will join the contingent of Brazilians at the Emirates after Willian and Gabriel Magalhaes joined the club this summer.
Having worked with the likes Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, the Physio will come with a lot of top-level experience and will hopefully help with player recoveries from injuries at the Emirates.
Arsenal has had a number of serious injury problems recently with the likes of Gabriel Martinelli and Calum Chambers missing for the long-term.
Ẹdu and his connections….life! That is why it is good to network yourself well.
I’m sorry but this is bland. Because you’re connected to people doesn’t mean you’re connected to the right people. I might know the North Korean leader doesn’t mean he’s a good leader. Comprende?
Is he actually good or is he just Edu’s butt buddy?
I’m getting worried about some staff and player signings which are made based on being friends,with someone at Arsenal.
That is life bro.. Networks and connections not just competence
My thoughts too McLoving. Looking at Psg, they don’t do really well on the injury front. Just compare the number of times neymar for instance was injured at Barcelona to the number of times he’s been injured at PSg since he joined and the length of the injuries as well. I hope the physio is really good because I think Morgan has done a great job since joining arsenal, player recovery rate has been top notch in the 2 years that he’s been here . We’ll miss him, goodluck to him
I’m not sure that bringing in the long term injuries to Chambers and Martinelli has anything to do with this expected change of personnel.
Thier injuries would be long term no matter who the medical team were/are and Bruno Mazziotti should not be expected to perform miracles.
One assumes Arteta has given the green light for this appointment as well, so let’s hope it goes through.
OT – just reading on BBC that Moyes and two of his players tested positive for coronavrus before their game with Hull City….what could this mean for The arsenal, if anything???
That’s a worrying development Ken for the victims and also for football. We might undergo another football break because more matches are being affected.
Absolutely Kstix, and following on from the orient /spud match cancellation due to the same virus, things might escalate out of control.
Football will have to, once again, take a step backwards.
