It’s been an amazing period over the past 8 seasons @LCFC . Thanks to all the staff and players I’ve been lucky enough to work with and call close friends. Memories that will last forever. Excited to have started the next thing! pic.twitter.com/pSjOF3fCzb

Simon will join a medical team at London Colney that continues to be headed up by Gary O’Driscoll. He’ll work closely with Senior Physio Jordan Reece and relative newbie Ricky O’Donoghue.
Arsenal decided not to extend the contract of Brazilian Bruno Mazzioti who joined from PSG last December. He’s since joined Spanish side Real Valladolid.
Best of luck to Simon, if you’ve got a magic sponge to hand, there’s a Ghanaian lad with a dicky ankle that could use it.
