Arsenal Announce Coaching Changes as Freddie Ljungberg Becomes New 1st Team Assistant

Arsenal announced some changes to their backroom staff on Monday with the highlight being Freddie Ljungberg and Steve Bould switching roles.

He added: "After getting his first season out of the way after replacing Arsene Wenger it's a new era for Arsenal and for Unai".

Arsenal endured quite a mixed bag of a season this term as it was Unai Emery's first season in charge of the football club when he took over in the summer of 2018.

"I'm looking forward to working in this new structure and to pass on my experience and knowledge about what is needed to succeed at this level".

Spanish boss Emery sees Tierney as having the qualities to step up to the top of the Premier League and having similar influence as to Andy Robertson at Liverpool to help Arsenal get back into the Champions League.

The former Arsenal defender, 56, will also help oversee the under-23s and under-18 "phase programme" with current Arsenal Academy manager Per Mertesacker.

"I have always had a deep commitment to developing young players and am delighted to be back working in an area which is so important to the future of our club". Maybe we need to rebuild, make a new team, and why not with the young players?

Head of football Raul Sanllehi proclaimed: "Identifying, recruiting and developing young players is a key part of our strategy".

"Alongside his new coaching responsibilities, Freddie will have a strong focus on the young players who are moving into the first team group".

I mean, players with much less ability than these two in lower leagues can attract buyers and yes, of course, Ozil and Mustafi have large wages but even so, in this day and age with so much money sloshing around you have to think there is a club out there that can find a place for these two, are they really that toxic?

The changes with take effect from the start of July with the club aiming to successfully bring young players through the ranks to the first team.
