Morgan has worked with both the Reds’ first-team after beginning at the academy in 2005.

Liverpool released a statement on Friday, thanking Morgan for his decade of excellent service.

“Chris is someone who commands the professional respect and personal warmth of the first-team players and all his colleagues at Melwood,” the statement read.

“The dedication and commitment he has shown to Liverpool, over a long period, has been immense. His expertise and experience has rightly gained him industry-wide recognition.

“We thank Chris for his considerable contribution and everyone at the club wishes him success for the future.”

Morgan himself took to Instagram to thank Liverpool for all they had done for him, and wished them good luck for the future.

“When I started at Liverpool 10 years ago I never dreamt I would get to experience the things I did and play a tiny role at a club of Liverpool’s standing and history.

Morgan has been released as part of Jurgen Klopp‘s restructure of his medical team, with fitness and conditioning coach Ryland Morgans also leaving in spring

Fitness coach Andreas Kornmayer and nutritionist Mona Nemmer have already been brought in from Bayern Munich, with both highly thought of in their respective fields.

Further back-room changes are expected prior to the start of next season.

The news of Morgan’s departure is expected to come as a something of a shock, though, with the physio very popular among the Liverpool squad.

Steven Gerrard has been very complimentary about him in the past, and he played a big part in getting captain Jordan Henderson back fit last season.
