Former Celtic man handed key role at Premier League club

Football has taken a huge leap in a short time when it comes to developing and improving certain off-field aspects, which were neglected not so long ago. Clubs around the world, including Celtic, are now relying on data to assess the past and influence the future.

General sentiment suggests this gives clubs an overall advantage. And given that more and more clubs are now interested in installing a specialist team of data analysts and sports scientists, this somewhat suggests that the team is reaping its benefits, which is why the idea continues to be promoted.

Sports science, for example, is based on the idea of ​​proposing strategic objectives to prevent injuries and improve individual and collective sports performance, as well as to manage and direct the development of the long-term load and the planning of the sports development.

It has become an important role in modern football as more matches are played every day and athletic ability has become more important than ever to succeed in the game.

Former Celtic player joins Premier League club Everton

As reported by Liverpool World, Everton have announced the appointment of Jack Nayler as Director of Sports Science. On the back of the ad, their director of football, Kevin Thelwell, said:

“Jack is one of the best in his profession and we are delighted that he will become a key part of our first-team setup.

“He is hugely respected in the field of sports science, evidenced by the fact that he has worked for some of the best clubs in Europe, and his expertise will further strengthen our talented backroom team at Everton.”

Nayler has extensive experience working at clubs like Chelsea, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain. There he had worked with former Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti. Before spending 15 months with RB Leipzig in Germany, Nayler also had a spell with Celtic.

Someone with his experience at the top level could certainly help a club like Everton, who have struggled with injury and performance on the pitch of late. They barely stayed up last season and will be hoping to avoid a relegation battle this time around.
