Confirmed: Leeds United to lose head physio Harvey Sharman to the Washington Nationals

Leeds United East Stand

The Washington Nationals have confirmed the imminent arrival of Leeds United head physio Harvey Sharman.

Major League Baseball outfit the Washington Nationals have confirmed on Twitter that they are adding Leeds United head physio Harvey Sharman to their staff.

Sharman has been with Leeds United since their Premier League days, having initially served as the club's Assistant Physio for six years from 2001, before moving up to become the club's head physio in 2007.

Now though, after eight years in the club's top physiotherapy role, Sharman is poised to leave Elland Road in a surprise move to the United States.

Sharman is not only leaving England, but also leaving football, as Major League Baseball outfit the Washington Nationals have confirmed on Twitter that Sharman is set to join their new medical structure.

 

The news of Sharman's departure from Elland Road could be a major blow for Leeds boss Steve Evans, who will now have to find a new head physio.

Sharman has been part of the furniture at Elland Road for almost 15 years, but now he is set to embark on a new career in America, leaving Evans with a major hole in his backroom staff - something he could certainly do without, less than a month in to his spell as Whites oss.
