Norwich City have confirmed that long-serving sports scientist Dave Carolan has left the club.

Three weeks after describing an Evening News report of Carolan's departure as “inaccurate”, the Canaries announced on their official website that Carolan, head of sports science, was “leaving to explore new opportunities in the field” after 10 years at Colney.

The Irishman joined City in 1998 when Bruce Rioch was appointed as manager and worked under five managers in all.

He is described by the club announcement as being “responsible for modernising the Canaries' fitness programme to keep pace with the changing demands of professional football”.
