Mikel Arteta announces Arsenal coaching staff

Mikel Arteta has named his coaching team at Arsenal, with Freddie Ljungberg confirmed as one of three assistants.

Arteta, who left Manchester City as Pep Guardiola’s assistant last week, returned to the Emirates, where he played for over five years, to succeed Unai Emery as Arsenal head coach.

Ljungberg, who took interim charge of the team for six matches, remains as an assistant coach alongside Albert Stuivenberg and Steve Round.

Stuivenberg is currently Ryan Giggs’ assistant manager with Wales and will combine duties with Arsenal until after the European Championships in the summer. He previously worked with Louis van Gaal at Manchester United.

Arteta has also brought in Round, who was part of David Moyes’ backroom staff at Everton and Manchester United.

Round has also worked in the England coaching set-up and held a role as director of football at Aston Villa.

Inaki Cana Pavon comes in as goalkeeping coach from Brentford to work with Sal Bibbo.

Pavon previously worked in Spain and Denmark after starting his playing career at Barcelona.

Arteta said:

“I am delighted to have this talented group of coaches alongside me. They bring a great mix of experience and fresh thinking.

“Along with the talented people we have in the club already they will be key people to get us back to winning ways.”
