Man Utd physio Swire retires

Manchester United's head physiotherapist Rob Swire has announced his retirement.

His successor will be the assistant he appointed 15 years ago, Neil Hough.

"It wasn't easy, it was a big decision," he admitted to manutd.com. "I'd been thinking about it for a year or more, working out when it would be right to retire.

"I've been doing the job for a long time and the hours mean you're working all the time, including weekends and evenings, and travelling a lot and that isn't easy when you have a family at home.

"It's been a fantastic job, a brilliant job, I couldn't have wanted anything better, but after 23 years at United, and the best of 30 years in total of working pretty much seven days a week, I couldn't keep doing it forever. I had to decide at some point when to stop and now's the time."
