Liverpool midfielder Arthur hires personal fitness team


Liverpool midfielder Arthur Melo has hired a personal fitness team to get himself up to speed.

The Brazil and Juventus midfielder, who is on loan at Anfield until next summer following his arrival on deadline day, came on as a substitute during the Reds’ 4-1 defeat by Napoli in the Champions League earlier this month, but hasn’t been seen since.

The 26-year-old suffered a handful of hamstring and ankle injuries at Juventus after arriving from Barcelona as a highly-rated youngster in 2020.

Hearing that his new manager plans to ‘be careful’ before using him too frequently, Arthur has reportedly hired his own personal fitness team to get him up to speed quickly after missing most of Liverpool’s pre-season.

The Times says nutritionist Joana Pessoa Dell’Oro, physiotherapist Adrian Martinez Castro and fitness coach Daniel Esteban Labarca Encina have joined Arthur at Anfield to aid his development.

Arthur also asked Liverpool under-21s coach Barry Lewtas if he could be a part of their youth side during the international break and subsequently played against Leicester in the Premier League 2 and Rochdale in the Papa John’s Trophy.
