Training Ground Guru | Cheeseman promoted to Director of Performance by Manchester City
Simon Timson is the overall strategic performance lead across City Football Group (his title is Performance Director) and Dan Lewindon also works across the group as Director of Player Health and Performance.
Cheeseman’s role will be specifically with Pep Guardiola’s men’s first team at Manchester City. As TGG has reported, City face a summer rebuild behind the scenes, with staff including Jason Wilcox (Academy Director), Paul Midgley (Northern UK Scouting Manager), Enzo Maresca and Rodolfo Borrell (both Assistants) having departed. Head of Human Performance Sam Erith also left City Football Group last October after 11 years.
There has been an eagerness to promote from within at City, as evidenced by Cheeseman’s elevation to Director of Performance.
