Liverpool have appointed Jonathan Power as their new club doctor and he will take up the role before the Premier League resumes.

Liverpool have appointed Jonathan Power as their new club doctor to replace Dr Jim Moxon, who departed in August.

An extensive search follows the departure of Dr. Jim Moxon in the summer, with manager Jurgen Klopp involved in the process.

Power, who hails from West Derby in Liverpool, previously spent more than four years as the England men’s team’s performance medicine doctor between 2017 and 2021.

Before that, he was the team doctor for the England under-17 team that won the World Cup in 2017 and the under-19 team that won the European Championship that same year.

Power also worked as Brentford’s matchday doctor for two years between 2019 and 2021, as well as club doctor for Leeds Rhinos and Yorkshire Carnegie.

He has most recently been working as a consultant in sports and exercise medicine at the Center for Sports and Orthopedic Medicine in Bermuda, and as director of sports and exercise medicine at the Yorkshire Sports Exercise Clinic.

Power will join Liverpool’s first-team training camp in Dubai next month and will take up the new full-time role when his notice period expires in early 2023.

Liverpool had begun their search for Moxon’s replacement in the summer with Klopp, sporting director Julian Ward, head of recovery and performance Andreas Schlumberger and director of football governance and administration Jonathan Bamber overseeing the process.

They unanimously agreed that Power was the best option out of a dozen interviewed candidates.

Liverpool must play two games in Dubai, against Lyon on December 11 and AC Milan on December 16.

They return to domestic action with a Carabao Cup tie against Manchester City on December 22 and resume their Premier League campaign at Aston Villa on Boxing Day.
