West Ham United have appointed former Chelsea and Watford Chief of Medical Staff Andy Rolls to the club's backroom team.
Rolls left Watford last week and, according to local news, has joined the medical team at Chadwell Heath. His departure was confirmed by the Hornets at the weekend; a statement on watfordfc.com confirming that "the highly-respected former Chelsea physio leaves his position with the Hornets to take up a job with a Premiership club."
Rolls spent three years learning his trade at Chelsea before moving to Vicarage Road in the summer of 2005. He is recognised by the Championship club as having played a "vital role in Watford's promotion in his first season".
watfordfc.com also referred to the departing Rolls as "a leader in the industry with many other clubs copying [his] techniques and systems."
