I''ve heard the job title many times now, but what does a sports scientist actually do?

Basically they''re researchers who specialise on how the body responds to excercise, training and the effect of stimuli and environmental changes. Sports scientists are the guys who can extrapolate running patterns from GPS data and then transfer that to a specialized training and diet plan, aimed at achieving peak performance. Some players (Like Bellamy) swear by the guys and credit them for extending their careers despite injury.

Try analysis of the players data from their bibs to ensure performances are at max and players refuelled rehydrated etc.

Glad to see the appointment. Shows how seriously we take the fitness and health of the players. Believe me, he will make a big difference. Football is more about fitness than ability now i''d say!
