BVB fitness chief Shad Forsythe the man against Reyna’s tears

Under Shad Forsythe, BVB have repositioned themselves in a key position off the pitch. We reveal who the American is and what strengths he should bring to Borussia.

His tears were heartbreaking: Giovanni Reyna ran to the dressing room, completely despondent, after just two minutes during Borussia Dortmund’s away game at VfB Stuttgart last season. The offensive player had just recovered from a muscle injury, and the American boy was hit again on his comeback. But Reyna was far from the only professional who had to watch due to injury in recent months: Loud black and yellow kickers were out of action for an average of 86 (!) days.

Now Shad Forsythe should provide a remedy. His focus: prevent injuries off the field with the holistic support of professionals. “In our eyes, regeneration is an active process that is supported by sleep and nutrition,” she admitted in an interview ten years ago. His resume is splendid: Forsythe worked for the DFB and more recently for Arsenal FC. Jogi Löw, Arsène Wenger and Unai Emery, among others, trusted the 49-year-old’s expertise.

As with the Gunners, Forsythe will also be responsible for Borussia’s fitness in Dortmund as “Head of Performance”. “We are very happy that we were able to convince Shad from Borussia Dortmund and our way,” future sporting director Sebastian Kehl said. image-Conversation: “With his great expertise and experience, he will be an absolute asset to us!”

A challenge that becomes particularly big in the packed year of the World Cup. All the more important that Borussia Dortmund have a large squad to implement these requirements in view of the huge number of English weeks.

From July, the football fan in Dortmund should use his knowledge to make sure that pain stories like Giovanni Reyna’s are not repeated if possible and that the newly formed team can attack with all the professionals, and hopefully without tearful exits
