Chris Moseley: Joined Boro in August 2002

Head Physio Chris Moseley has left Middlesbrough after more than two decades to become Head of Medical at New York Red Bulls in the MLS.

Moseley joined Boro from Stoke City as first-team physio at the start of 2002/03 and was promoted to Head Physio in May 2011. The 0-0 home draw against Blackburn on March 16th was his 1,012th and final game for Boro.

Manager Michael Carrick said: “It’s been unbelievable service from Mose for so long. I’ve worked with him now for 18 months or so and he’s been fantastic for me with his support, but obviously a lot longer than that for the club and the success he’s had since he’s been here.

"On behalf of me and the club, we wish him all the very best. A new chapter and new adventure for him and his family, so hopefully it goes well for him."

Writing on Twitter, Moseley added: "I feel privileged to have been part of the club's history, being in the backroom team that won the Carling Cup, had fantastic UEFA Cup runs and the highest ever Premier League finish.

"I have worked with some unbelievable members of staff, managers and players during my time, while experiencing the high and low periods and memories associated that will always live with me.

"Too many people to thank but they know who they are and special thanks to Tony Mowbray, who gave me the chance to lead the department, Adam Reed for being my lieutenant for 18 years, Nick Allamby, who has been my right hand man from the start and of course Steve Gibson. Without him, none of us would be here.

"Good luck to Michael and the boys going forward. You are in good hands. Thanks for having me. UTB."
