Report: Arsenal appoint new under-23s coach

7

Arsenal have appointed Kevin Betsy as the new coach of the under-23s, according to Training Ground Guru.

The position has been vacant since May when the club took the decision to part ways with Steve Bould.

A UEFA Pro Licence holder, the highly-rated 43-year-old joins the Gunners off the back of a year as England’s under-18s coach. His LinkedIn profile also details spells as coach of the national team’s under-15s, 16s and 17s and nearly seven years coaching youngsters at Fulham.

During an 18-year playing career, Betsy featured for the likes of Woking, Fulham, Barnsley, Oldham and Wycombe Wanderers.

We’re expecting the club to confirm Betsy’s appointment imminently with Ryan Garry, who has been coaching the under-23s on an interim basis, set to be his assistant.
