Head of human performance, Richard Hawkins joined Manchester United in March 2008, having previously occupied roles with the Football Association and West Bromwich Albion.
In early 2005, Richard joined Bryan Robson’s West Brom as conditioning coach before following Robson to Sheffield United at the beginning of the 2007/08 season. His role with the Blades was short-lived, and a move to United beckoned before the season’s end.
Richard primarily deals with the club’s first-teamers, tracking their rehabilitation programmes and general physical development. But his longer term strategy is to build a human performance structure throughout the club, ensuring the same framework from the senior stars right down to the Under-9s.
