Liverpool FC boss Brendan Rodgers takes former Swans sports scientist Ryland Morgans
Brendan Rodgers has returned to Swansea City to take a fourth member of his old Liberty Stadium backroom to Anfield.
Rodgers quit South Wales for Merseyside in June and immediately secured deals for analyst Chris Davies, performance consultant Glen Driscoll and assistant Colin Pascoe.
But he has now appointed former Swans head of sports science Ryland Morgans to his coaching team at Liverpool, pictured taking training today at Melwood having left the Liberty on Friday.
Morgans, who doubled as the fitness coach with the Wales national side under both Gary Speed and Chris Coleman, opted to leave Swansea to "develop his career elsewhere".
Morgans joined Swansea in August 2010, leaving Fulham to link up with his hometown team and was part of the Rodgers backroom that helped the Swans to the promotion.
But he appears to have been installed into a conditioning role at Liverpool, snapped just a week after head of conditioning and fitness Darren Burgess left his post.
There had been some overlapping of Morgans' role at Swansea following Michael Laudrup's appointment of ex-Monaco fitness guru Osca Garcia in the summer as fitness and conditioning coach.
It is not yet clear whether Swansea will look to fill the head of sports science post vacated by Morgans.
