Dave Rennie appointed Head of Medical Performance

Bristol City has appointed Dave Rennie as its Head of Medical Performance.

Rennie brings more than 20 years’ experience of leading elite football medical teams to the Robins.

He has overseen City’s end of season baseline testing for players and will work with the existing medical and strength and conditioning staff to prepare for the return of the squad at the end of June.

Rennie is reunited with City manager Nigel Pearson following their two spells together at Leicester City, where Rennie was head physiotherapist for two decades, and he was a key figure in the backroom staff when the Foxes won the League One title in 2008/09, the Championship title in 2013/14 and the Premier League in 2015/16.

Pearson said: “I am delighted that Dave has decided to join us. He is the one name too frequently omitted from the Leicester City success story - his influence across the club is immeasurable and he brings a level of expertise, experience and personality which is rare in sport. Dave is an expert in ensuring that players are physically robust enough to deal with the rigours of the football season. He is an important appointment in addressing that and building a fit and resilient squad.”

Rennie, who has worked at more than 1,000 games across the Champions League, Premier League, Championship and League One, added: “This is a really exciting challenge which I am looking forward to getting stuck into. There’s a lot of work to be done and I’ve already had positive discussions with the staff as well as meeting some of the players before the off-season.”
