Charlton Athletic have appointed Danny Murphy as their new head physiotherapist.
Murphy had a consultancy period at the South London club at the end of last season.
The Addicks announced the departure of Alastair Thrush, who had been head of medical services, last month.
Murphy is the first appointment to the club’s medical staff following the takeover of Thomas Sandgaard in September.
Technical director Ged Roddy said: “One of the first things I wanted to look at when I came into the football club, was how we could better support the first team. By adding Danny we have appointed someone with a range of experience, working with some of the highest profile names in our sport.
“Under Thomas, we are building a long-term project and Danny will lead the physiotherapy team to ensure the club has the highest quality of clinical care for our players.
“I would also like to pay tribute to Adam Coe, the club’s first-team physiotherapist, who stepped up and covered the department during a period where we have been short staffed. Adam will continue working as part of Danny’s team, which we will look to add to in the future.”
Murphy studied at the University of Greenwich and began his professional career with Charlton Athletic Community Trust as well as spending time working for the club’s academy.
He has also spent time at the FA, in La Liga and with Tottenham Hotspur.
Murphy said: “I’m really excited to return to the club and to be involved in the journey that Thomas Sandgaard, Lee Bowyer and his team are going on. The club has some excellent staff in the building and some very busy weeks ahead, so I’m looking forward to getting to work.”
