Manchester United’s interim club doctor used to work for Liverpool

Late last year, it was revealed that legendary figure Steve McNally was to step down from his role as club doctor at Manchester United after an impressive 16 years in the position.

McNally first joined the club during Sir Alex Ferguson’s reign and the experienced doctor has been present at Old Trafford through some of the most successful periods of the club’s history.

United announced in January that McNally would be stepping down in favour of pursuing a role within the PGMOL – the referees governing body in football. McNally is, however, still working at United and will remain in the position until January.

It was also revealed that Jim Moxon would be replacing McNally on an interim basis and Moxon’s working history is certainly interesting.

The club disclosed that Moxon had recently worked for Liverpool and considering the fierce rivalry between the two sides, that’s undeniably an interesting detail to this.

According to This is Anfield, Moxon spent two years at Liverpool, initially joining the Merseyside club in 2020 but abruptly left the club at the start of this season.

His departure resulted in the lack of a club doctor for as long as five months, with Moxon taking up a position with the Old Trafford club instead.

It remains to be seen whether Moxon is given the full-time gig at Old Trafford once his interim period ends but supporters will be happy to learn that it may have been a little inconvenient for their bitters rivals.
