Real Madrid are making changes to their first-team medical staff this summer and they have recruited doctor Niko Mihic as their new head of the department, who replaces doctor Jesus Olmo.
Olmo left on July 3 , along with surgeon Mikel Aramberri, after he’d taken on some external projects.
Mihic, a Croatian, has a close relationship with fellow countrymen Luka Modric and Mateo Kovacic, as well as being very close to club president Florentino Perez.
Besides directing the Early Prevention Unit of Madrid’s HM Hospitals group and practicing in Montreal, Canada, the doctor also taught medicine at CEU and served as a medical consultant for Air France and KLM.
Moving forward, the doctor will now dedicate himself exclusively to Los Blancos and will be present day-to-day at Valdebebas, before departing with the club for their visit to the United States as part of their upcoming tour.
