Arsenal fitness coach Shad Forsythe has joined Borussia Dortmund after leaving the Emirates.
The 49-year-old worked for the Gunners for eight years as the club’s Head of Performance.
But in May it was confirmed he would be departing north London despite making a significant improvement on the club’s injury record.
Forsythe joins a host of backroom staff who have left the Emirates since Arsene Wenger retired in 2018.
In 2020, the Gunners let go 55 employees as part of a cost cutting measure due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Last month, it was announced that first-team kit manager Paul Akers was exiting the club after 21 years.
Forsythe was close to joining AC Milan in 2019 but was persuaded to stay by Arsenal after another coach Darren Burgess left.
The American also works with the German national team and played a major role in their 2014 World Cup win.
Speaking about his arrival, Dortmund’s sporting director Sebastian Kehl said: ‘We’re very happy that we were able to convince Shad.
‘With his great expertise and experience, he will be an asset to us.’
