Arsenal have confirmed that Mikel Arteta has added three coaches to his backroom staff following the departure of Freddie Ljungberg, announced last week, and goalkeeper coach Sal Bibbo.
The trio arrives from Brentford, Juventus and Atletico Madrid respectively and will assist Steve Round and Albert Stuivenberg on day-to-day matters.
We learnt last week that Georgson’s role at Griffin Park paid special attention to set pieces, an area that the Gunners are desperate to improve upon both offensively and defensively. No doubt we’ll learn more about the others in due course.
The Gunners have also confirmed that Jordan Reece will take over as head physio after Chris Morgan returned to Liverpool. There had been links with PSG’s Brazilian physio Bruno Mazziotti but they appear to have come to nothing, for now.
Reece was promoted from head of academy physiotherapy to first team physiotherapist in 2018 and was a visible presence on the touchline at the tail-end of last season.
Best of luck to the new boys and a big thank you to those departing.
