Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has made his first signing by snapping up German national team physio Shad Forsythe, according to the Daily Star website
He joins the Arsenal backroom team alongside Tony Colbert, the club’s long-standing first team fitness coach, as the North London club look to find a solution to the injury problems that have dogged recent seasons.
Wenger has previously vowed to look at his side’s training and medical methods after repeated problems with injuries.
And it is thought that Forsythe has been appointed to help modernise their injury prevention methods at their training ground.
A study conducted by physioroom.com revealed that Arsenal’s players spent more time on the sidelines last season than any other team’s players.
