New Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has named the club’s former interim boss Freddie Ljungberg and Albert Stuivenberg as assistant coaches.

Ljungberg, now a fan favourite, deputised for Unai Emery until he was sacked last month after a run of poor results.

Stuivenberg worked with Louis van Gaal at Manchester United. He is currently assistant manager of the Wales team with Ryan Giggs and will continue in this role as well as his Arsenal duties until after the European Championship in the summer.

Steve Round is also joining the club as an assistant coach.

Round has coached with Middlesbrough, Newcastle, Everton, Manchester United and England. He has also been Director of Football at Aston Villa.

A former Barcelona player Inaki Cana Pavon comes in as goalkeeping coach from Brentford to work with Sal Bibbo. He previously worked in Spain and Denmark.

“I am delighted to have this talented group of coaches alongside me,” Arteta told the club website.

“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.”
