Man Utd to Overhaul Physio Department

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is seeking to restructure the physiotherapy department at Manchester United, with appointments expected to be made soon.

Reports state that United will bring in a new head physio, a role currently occupied by Richard Merron. The potential new recruit has been identified as Celtic’s Tim Williamson, the Scottish club’s head of physiotherapy, with United having recently been interviewing a substantial number of candidates for the role.

Further appointments are expected, with an as-yet unnamed assistant to Williamson anticipated to arrive from Championship side Leeds United while more positions could be added.

Changes to the set-up come amid concerns from Solskjaer, who believes that the club's players are struggling to match their rivals’ stamina levels.

United have failed to hold onto leads in games against Rochdale, Southampton, Arsenal, Liverpool, and Wolves, and could not hold onto a point in their attempted comeback at home to Crystal Palace.

Sunday's 3-3 draw at Sheffield United also saw the Red Devils lose two points, as Oli McBurnie's stoppage-time equaliser cancelled out United's comeback from 2-0 down to go 3-2 up late on.

Additionally, Solskjaer has seen a number of players struggle with injuries throughout his tenure. Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
