Arsenal have announced the full line-up of coaches who will work with new boss Unai Emery, and Arsene Wenger’s assistant manager Steve Bould has been retained, while former Invincible Jens Lehmann has been let go along with the majority of the former manager’s staff.
Bould will be one of two assistant head coaches, alongside the Spaniard’s long-time coaching assistant, Juan Carlos Carcedo.
Head Coach: Unai Emery
First Team Assistant Head Coach: Juan Carlos Carcedo
First Team Assistant Head Coach: Steve Bould
First Team Coach: Pablo Villanueva
Director of High Performance: Darren Burgess
Strength and Conditioning Coach: Julen Masach
Goalkeeping Coach: Javi Garcia
Goalkeeping Coach: Sal Bibbo
Data/Video Analyst: Victor Manas
The club have also confirmed the departures of Neil Banfield, Tony Colbert, Jens Lehmann, Gerry Peyton and Boro Primorac. As well as the Head of Medical Services, Colin Lewin, physiotherapists Andy Rolls and Ben Ashworth, osteopath Dr Philippe Boixel and Travel Manager Paul Johnson.
Bould was reportedly down under with Darren Burgess recently, an indication that his services would be retained – and having somebody who knows the club as well as he does on Emery’s staff is a sensible move.

So, now we know who the people are behind the scenes, and they’ll be getting down to work in the very near future as pre-season begins in early July.
