Man United part ways with 'injury prevention specialist' Matt Radcliffe

Manchester United have parted ways with first-team physiotherapist Matt Radcliffe after a challenging first season at the Old Trafford club, sources have confirmed to ESPN FC.

United's star players were hit by a host of injuries during Louis van Gaal's first season as manager last term, with Radcliffe paying the price as he left his position on Van Gaal's staff in recent days.

Radcliffe was hired from Southampton last October and given a role as injury prevention specialist after Van Gaal's first few weeks at United were dominated by a clutch of injuries to key first-team players.

Michael Carrick, Luke Shaw, Ashley Young, Angel Di Maria, Robin van Persie and loan signing Radamel Falcao were among a host of star names that suffered long-term injuries at United last season, with Radcliffe struggling to find a solution to injury concerns that undermined the club's efforts to sustain a title challenge.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is already being linked with a move to add Radcliffe to his medical staff at Spurs, after the duo enjoyed a successful working relationship in their time together at Southampton.

Paul Mitchell, Tottenham's head of recruitment, also made the move from St Mary's to White Hart Lane last season.
