EPL: Arteta Names Arsenal Coaching Staff




New Arsenal head coach, Mikel Arteta has named his coaching crew with Freddie Ljungberg retaining his former position as an assistant coach.

Naija News reports that ex-Manchester City assistant manager, Mikel Arteta, was last Friday appointed as the new head coach of Arsenal

Arteta, who is a former Arsenal player, was given a three-and-a-half-year deal at the North London club.

The development means Arteta left his role as Manchester City assistant manager and replaces Freddie Ljungberg who handled the club on an interim basis after the sacking Unai Emery.

Arsenal on Tuesday announced it has appointed Ljungberg alongside Albert Stuivenberg and Steve Round.

Stuivenberg is currently Ryan Giggs’ assistant manager with Wales and will combine duties with Arsenal until after Euro 2020.

He previously worked with Louis van Gaal at Manchester United.

Arteta has also brought in Round, who was part of David Moyes’ backroom staff at Everton and Manchester United.

Inaki Cana Pavon comes in as goalkeeping coach from Brentford to work with Sal Bibbo.

“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,” Arteta told the club’s official website.
