Arsenal name Edu as new technical director

Arsenal name Edu as new technical director

A member of the Invincibles, Edu will coordinate the work of Arsenal's first team, their coaching group and the academy, alongside player scouting and recruitment.

However, the London club will loan the 18-year-old back to Saint-Etienne next season so he can continue to learn his trade in the French top flight.

Vazquez isn't the only Madrid player Arsenal are reportedly keen on as Mundo Deportivo also claim Emery is hoping to sign Diaz this summer in what would be a big-money double swoop on the European giants.

FORMER midfielder Edu has returned to Arsenal to become their first ever technical director. "He has great experience and technical football knowledge and most importantly is a true Arsenal man".

Arsenal needs defenders and if they are going to splash out £18 Million you have to think it would be better spent than on a forward that has hardly set the world alight.

Celtic have begun their UEFA Champions League qualifiers and even Kieran Tierney was named in the squad that was submitted to UEFA even though he is injured.


The Spanish boss is short one forward in his squad after making the decision to allow the injury prone Danny Welbeck to leave the club after his deal expired in June.

He won the title with them in 2002 as well as being apart of the historical team to go unbeaten during the 2003/04 Premier League campaign.

Last season's Europa League runners-up had been looking for a new director since the departure of Sven Mislintat in February and have turned ex-Brazil worldwide Edu, who played for the Gunners from 2001 to 2005.

Following the departure of chief executive Ivan Gazidis to AC Milan, Raul Sanllehi has been in the head of football role and Edu's arrival has always been rumored.

"Juninho also represents the Brazilian football that lifts trophies". It is the first time the Gunners have employed someone in such a role.
