Sea of change continues at Anfield
Liverpool's conditioning coach Darren Burgess is heading out of Anfield as Brendan Rodgers continues to put his own stamp down.
Burgess, who arrived on Merseyside after working with Australia in the 2010 World Cup, is returning down under where he is likely to take up a job in Australian Rules football. He has decided to leave the Reds after finding his duties altered in the wake of Rodgers' appointment as Kenny Dalglish's successor in the summer. Burgess told Fox Sports: "Brendan wanted to bring in some staff from Swansea, and Brendan has been fantastic, but my role has changed and it's not really worth living on the other side of the world for. "It's tough, because I worked for 15 years to try to get into the EPL, it was my dream. But I leave thinking it's the right thing for my family." Burgess is the third senior member of the club's medical team to depart this year, with head of sports science Peter Brukner having left in April, while physio manager Phil Coles is going in November after landing a job with Australian Rugby League side Newcastle Knights.
