Manchester United’s Head of Strength and Conditioning Gary Walker is leaving the club after 11 years to move to the MLS FC Cincinnati where he has been named as Director of Sports Performance.
He first joined United in March 2008 as strength and conditioning coach before being promoted to Head S&C in July 2010.
Walker tweeted: “All good things must come to an end. After 11 years, the time has come to leave this great club. I’ve had some amazing experiences at Man Utd and made some incredible friends and memories.
“A huge thank you to all of the managers, staff and players that I have worked with. I wish Ole and the lads all the best for the end of the season and huge success in the future. Now onto the next challenge.”
United have experienced a period of transition this season following Jose Mourinho’s sacking.
Most of Mourinho’s trusted lieutenants left with him when Ed Woodward pulled the trigger in December.
Mike Phelan is assisting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, along with fellow former United player Mark Dempsey.
Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna are operating as first-team coaches, as they did under Mourinho.
