If the stories from RMC are correct, then Javi Garcia will become Arsenal’s new goalkeeping coach, working with Unai Emery again after spells with him at Sevilla and PSG.
There’s a vacancy at the moment because long-time coach Gerry Peyton was let go when Arsene Wenger left the club earlier this month, and it’s an area that has needed attention for some time anyway.
The Spaniard also has Premier League experience, having worked for a time at Swansea City, and there’s also a vague Arsenal connection because one of the players he coached there was former Gunner Lukasz Fabianski.
In 2014, as he prepared for his first full season with the club, the Polish international said, “I must say I’m really enjoying the work I’m doing with Javier.
“He is very organised and prepared, and his sessions are interesting and exciting – every day has something new.
“It is very important for us goalkeepers, especially at Swansea, to play well with our feet and start things from the back.
“So everything we have been doing in training with Javier is helping us improve on that area.”
Garcia spent 12 months with Swansea before returning to Spain, and he was replaced there by former Arsenal goalkeeping coach Tony Roberts whose YouTube/Twitter are well worth a follow as he often posts very interesting videos of his sessions.
