Arsenal hire Germany fitness pro to stop injuries

ARSENAL-FITNESSLONDON, August 5- Arsenal have confirmed the appointment of World Cup winning fitness coach Shad Forsythe as they take significant steps towards preventing last season’s injury woes.

Forsythe, who was part of Germany’s triumphant Brazil 2014 campaign, joined up with the Gunners squad during their recent tour of New York before travelling with the team to Austria for a pre-season training camp.

A series of injury problems last term raised question marks over the Gunners’ training methods at their London Colney HQ.

Manager Arsene Wenger revealed last year how the club had started a review of their procedures following an accumulation of injuries that disrupted their Premier League title challenge.

Forsythe, who will take the match-day warm-ups, will work in tandem with the club’s current fitness specialist Tony Colbert.

The American already has a close working relationship with the club’s German trio Per Mertesacker, Mesut Ozil and Lukas Podolski following his role with the German FA.

    If sonko represent the youth I am not one though I am aged 25.He is unethical barbaric and lacks integrity. He should face the full force of the law and if found guilty jailed without fine to serve as an example to others with the same behavior

    This is the stupidest behavior I have ever seen from a leader who purports to be a Mheshimiwa. And when at it can the police deal with this guy once and for all? why do they take half baked cases and then lose? This guy belongs in Kamiti

    Mbuvi, the so called Sonko is a stupid ass n nothing less!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Look at the gangsters in the name of MPs terrorising Police officers on duty on such a sensitive place like an Iternational Airport. WHAT A MESSAGE TO THE RIGHT-THINKING KENYANS AND THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY AT LARGE!!!! Surely Kenya is a country lead by pigs, (animals without a head, n therefore without brain)
    This is the problem of Kenya’s Authorities allowing even known criminals into responsible positions to serve public.

    This should serve as a lesson to all the mature voting citizen to vote next time.  I am a Makadara constituent and i voted during the by-election.  the majority of those voting on that day were the likes of sonko.  If we were to all vote the likes of sonko would not be “muheshimewas”.
