Arsenal Chief Executive Ivan Gazidis said: “Unai has a very strong and talented team and I’m delighted that they are joining us. I’m also pleased that Steve Bould, Sal Bibbo and Darren Burgess will continue their work with us. As we go through this period of change, we need to retain some continuity and they have an important role to play.”

First team coaches Neil Banfield, Tony Colbert, Jens Lehmann, Gerry Peyton and Boro Primorac; Head of Medical Services, Colin Lewin; Physiotherapists Andy Rolls and Ben Ashworth; Osteopath Dr Philippe Boixel and Travel Manager Paul Johnson have left the club.

Ivan said: “All these people have played a huge part in the club’s success and development over many years. We thank them for all their hard work and wish them all the best for the future.”


This is great news and just as important as signing a new player.

Our coahing staff has been as stale as Wenger was and in fact you could harldy even see if there was any proper coaching going on at Arsenal for the past few years.

I have said before that a new coaching team is needed as much as a new manager.[]

I feel like my optimism is starting to come back again.

In the end looks like Arsenal is behaving like proper football club. All the best to the team Emery n agree Gazidis’s comment regarding continuity. Steve hold knows that when he agreed to be in the club he has to reinvent him in the new role of communicating things to the players new manager’s idea.
