Nobes’ final match with City was Sunday’s 3-1 defeat of United in the Manchester derby
Manchester City’s head physio Lee Nobes has left the club to join Premier League rivals Liverpool, according to reports.
Nobes’ final match serving the Etihad Stadium club was Sunday’s 3-1 defeat of United in the Manchester derby, ending his 11-year spell working for City.
He begins his new role with Liverpool on November 26, after the international break, according to Training Ground Guru.
Nobes has been hired by the Reds to replace Matt Konopinski, who left Anfield in September to start working for the Football Association.
Nobes celebrated his 10th anniversary with Man City last October, and leaves just after completing his 11th year with the club.
He joined in October 2007 from Oldham when Sven-Goran Eriksson was City manager, and has gone on to work under Mark Hughes, Roberto Mancini, Manuel Pellegrini and Pep Guardiola, the club’s current boss.
Nobes leaves City to join their closest rivals in the race for the Premier League title, with Guardiola’s side two points clear of the Reds atop the table.
Jurgen Klopp’s men moved into first with their defeat of Fulham on Sunday afternoon, but City returned to the apex by winning the Manchester derby later in the day.
