Newcastle United has disclosed a departure from the club behind the scenes.
Danny Murphy, Newcastle United’s chief physiotherapist, has left the club.

Murphy joined Newcastle in October 2022 after working as a consultant for Charlton Athletic, England Under-21s, West Ham United, and Crystal Palace. Following an extended time of parental leave, he has now departed the club.
“The club would like to thank Danny for his hard work, professionalism, and development of the service during his 15 months with the first team, during which he has made a significant contribution to the club’s success,” a club statement said on Monday morning.

“We wish him and his family well for the future.”
Murphy was hired by Newcastle sporting director Dan Ashworth, whom he knew from his experience with England’s Under-21 team. Previously, Ashworth served as the Football Association’s director of elite development.

Murphy’s exit comes at a time when Newcastle is dealing with an injury issue, with numerous players out injured in recent months. Despite the return from injury of Callum Wilson, Sven Botman, Sean Longstaff, Dan Burn, Alexander Isak, and Joelinton, the club still has Elliot Anderson, Joe Willock, Harvey Barnes, Nick Pope, Jacob Murphy, Matt Targett, and Javier Manquillo, as well as Jamaal Lascelles.
