Morgan spent a decade at Liverpool before leaving the club in 2016 and joining Arsenal’s medical team in 2018 after spells with the FA, LA Galaxy and Crystal Palace.
The move won’t come immediately, but when the 2019/20 campaign ends as he will take the Reds’ first-team physiotherapist Christopher Rohrbeck’s place in the medical team. Rohrbeck is to return to Germany for family reasons, as first reported by The Athletic.
Morgan’s move will come as a disappointment for the Gunners after they successful fought off Liverpool’s advances for head of sports medicine Dr Gary O’Driscoll in March. As revealed by football.london , his decision was made on personal and professional grounds as he is excited to see what Mikel Arteta can do with the side.
In May, the Gunners made another positive step in regard to their medical team by officially appointing Florence Newton as a first team doctor. As reported by football.london , she had been working with the team since the Gunners’ summer tour of the USA last year.
