Who is Sergi Morera? And what will he bring to Mohun Bagan?

Yesterday a news broke that Sergi Morera has been appointed as the new strength and conditioning coach of Mohun Bagan. Mohun Bagan struggled a lot last season with injuries where key players got injured and they did not make a come back within the time; Mohun Bagan had to sign several replacements in the January window, which is never a good sign for a team who aspiers to be a title Challenger.

But this time, it seems management is planning everything properly so that injuries can be avoided and players can be in good shape before the season starts. 

Now, who is Sergi Morera, and what will he bring to the team? 

Sergi Morera started his career with Mexican Side Lobos Buap's u20 team; after working for a year, he moved to then La Liga side Deportivo Alaves as a Conditioning coach, where he was with the squad for 18-19 season and Deportivo finished 11th in La Liga that season. After his strong performance, he joined City Football Group, where he was hired as an assistant manager and conditionint coach for the Girona FC youth. After spending two years with them he joined Northern Virginia United FC. But the highlight of his career came this season. He joined Armenian Premiere League side 'FC Urartu' in April. FC Urartu finished 5th the last season in Armenian league, but, Sergi's inclusion gave the team a much needed push and FC Urartu became the League winners after 8 long season. Not only that, they achieved a domestic double by winning the Armenian Cup too after 6 years!

Sergi was a key factor in this success!

Now, let's understand what does a Strength and Conditioning coach do? 

The Strength and Conditioning Coach is responsible for establishing and maintaining a strength and conditioning program for all sports, with the three major goals of improving athletic performance, reducing athletic injuries, and teaching lifelong fitness and movement skills.

How will it impact Mohun Bagan? 

As discussed earlier, Mohun Bagan's fitness was a major concern last term. Key players like Joni Kauko, Florentine Pogba, Tiri, Dipak Tangri; all suffered injuries in crucial stages of the season, which hampered the plans of Mohun Bagan boss Juan Ferrando and de-railed the team from a potential League Shield victory.

After making huge signings this season and assembling the Most Valued squad in Indian Football, Mohun Bagan will hope injuries won't impact the season again, and inclusion of Sergi Morera will be a big boost for the team.
