"This is a great partnership because it is something new, something different. We made a couple of signings in the summer but this is a big signing, perhaps the most important step forward this club has taken in a long, long time. Sometimes supporters won't see that, the public won't see that, but we'll see it and the players will really appreciate it. We've been building the medical centre for quite a time now, for about six months. But we're getting there and this partnership with Toshiba will add to it with their medical systems bringing a new dimension to sports science and medical treatment for our players. It will put us above most clubs in the world. We already have a fantastic medical staff and they will relish the challenge of working with Toshiba medical systems."
