Arsenal Boss Mikel Arteta Appoints Three New Staff To His Backroom Team

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has appointed three new members to his backroom team as he continues rebuilding the team.

Arteta had to replace Freddie Ljungberg, who stepped down from his role as first-team coach earlier this week to pursue his management ambitions.

Goalkeeping coach Sal Bibbo has also departed after five years with the club, but the Gunners boss has hired immediate replacements.

Former Juventus coach Carlos Cuesta comes in, as well as Andreas Georgson from Brentford and Miguel Molina who has worked for Atletico Madrid previously.

The appointments are in addition to the promotion of Jordan Reece to head physio following Chris Morgan’s move back to Liverpool.

Georgson’s arrival is particularly of interest given his expertise in set pieces which he oversaw in his previous role with Brentford.

He follows goalkeeper coach Inaka Cana who moved from the Championship club earlier this year.

Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp had also been linked with a coaching role after Ljungberg announced he was leaving but Arteta has ultimately gone with his own selections.

Ljungberg held the fort after Unai Emery’s sacking but felt increasingly redundant after Arteta’s appointment and the subsequent hire of Steve Round as his no.2.
