Liverpool announce that their head of fitness and conditioning Ryland Morgans is to leave the club in order to focus on a new challenge.

Liverpool have confirmed that their head of fitness and conditioning Ryland Morgans is to leave the club.

Morgans joined Liverpool in October 2012 while Brendan Rodgers was manager, but will end his three-and-a-half year stay at Anfield in order to pursue new challenges.

"This has been an extremely difficult decision to reach, but I feel now is the right time to move on and pursue a new challenge. I will always be grateful to Brendan Rodgers for giving me the opportunity to work at the highest club level of the game alongside some of the biggest figures in the industry," he told the clubs official website.

"There have been some amazing experiences along the way and to serve a club of this stature is an honour and a privilege I will never forget. However, professionally, it is time to seek a new challenge.

"Finally, I would like to thank the club and Ian Ayre for their support during my time and wish Jurgen Klopp, the staff at Melwood and the supporters all the best for the future and every success for the remainder of the season."

Klopp added: "Ryland is a fantastic professional and a really good guy. Wherever he works next, they will be extremely fortunate to have someone of his capabilities. We all respect his decision and thank him for the work he has done, not just since we arrived, but before that also."

Morgans is also a member of Wales's backroom staff, working as the head of performance under manager Chris Coleman.
