There is no question he has done an exceptional job in helping with the design of the American Express Elite Football Performance Centre and in putting in place a first-class infrastructure in the football, academy and sports science areas of the club.

'David's work in helping to establish the club's first-ever academy and to quickly gain category one status in the new world of the EPPP guidelines is highly appreciated by myself and by everyone at the club.

'He's also helped to put in place our scouting department, and his work in all these areas will stand us in very good stead for the future. 'On behalf of the board I would like to thank David for these achievements and to wish him the very best for the future.'
