CHELSEA have reportedly hired Dave Grohl’s personal physical therapist, Freddie Murray.
The Blues have been on the lookout for a new medical team after they lost former chief physiotherapist Thierry Laurent and medical director Dr. fired Pablo Biosca.
Chelsea will work with Murray and his clinic Remedy on an advisory basis, advising the club on their medical team and structures, the Daily Mail reports.
In fact, Remedy has reportedly already started working with Chelsea stars, helping out the likes of N’Golo Kante, Wesley Fofana and the other currently injured Blues players.
Murray, 40, is a former footballer turned physical therapist who has helped some big stars in and out of the game.
After retiring at the age of 28, he trained as a physical therapist and worked for the QPR Academy under Harry Redknapp.
He later founded his own clinic, Remedy, where he caught the attention of Foo Fighters frontman Grohl.
The rock star enlisted Murray’s services to help him recover from a broken leg he sustained when he fell off the stage during his 2015 world tour in Stockholm, Sweden.
Grohl joked that the Scot “tortured” him back to health, but he did invite Murray to perform in Dublin in 2019 and even featured the former Blackburn player on stage.
He also dedicated a song to Murray, who has helped other stars including former Newcastle winger Florian Thauvin.

Murray also played for Cambridge, Northampton and Luton and has had a change of heart since 2020 when he said he turned down Prem clubs to focus on his work with Remedy.
He said: “I’ve had offers from Premier League clubs to work as a physiotherapist in recent years but there’s no job that would take me back there.
“The work I’m doing now [with Remedy] That’s how I want to work with a client, whether it’s an athlete or anyone, we treat them the way they should be treated.”
