Mikel Arteta Names Coaching Team

Mikel Arteta has named the individuals that will make up his coaching team as he prepares to revive Arsenal from the shambles they have been reduced to in the last few months.

Freddie Ljungberg will remain as earlier concluded and the Swede whose reign as interim head coach came to a close at Goodison Park will be assistant manager.

Albert Stuivenberg and Steve Round will also be taking similar roles as Freddie. Stuivenberg was a part of Louis van Gaal's coaching team at Manchester United. The Dutchman is currently an assistant to Ryan Giggs in the Wales national team. He will continue working with both sides until after Euro 2020.

Round apart from being a former Football Director at Aston Villa has also worked with Middleborough, Newcastle, Everton, Manchester United and England.

Inaki Cana Pavon has also been drafted in from Brentford to work with Sal Bibbo as goalkeeper coach. He once plied his trade with Spain and Denmark. Inaki owns a goalkeeping academy in Spain

This means that Ljungberg and Sal Bibbo are the only men standing from Unai Emery's crew.

Spesking on the choices made, Arteta said: "I am delighted to have this talented group of coaches alongside me. They bring a great mix of experience and fresh thinking. Along with the talented people we have in the club already they will be key people to get us back to winning ways."

We wish them all success in their new quest and hope that with them around, better things shall begin happening at Arsenal.
