In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast I am speaking to Head of Sports Medicine & Athletic Development at Arsenal Academy, Des Ryan. Des was one of the first people I reached out to when I first started the podcast, however, because Des was new in his role at Arsenal, it wasn't quite the right time. However, 6 years later Des has now been in the role for nearly 8 years. Although we chatted about Des' role at Arsenal, Des is very passionate about improving the industry, especially for the next generation of coaches. The need for a union to help protect practitioners is really gaining some momentum so this formed a large part of this episode which is absolutely fascinating and very exciting.
If you enjoyed this episode with Des Ryan, you will enjoy these with Paudie Roche and Darren Burgess.
