Former player, appointed to oversee the club’s long-term vision, will find a squad in urgent need of quality in key positions
Arsène Wenger was always so resistant to the idea of a technical director that it never got much leverage at Arsenal until he was gone. But a twisted route means it has taken the club more than a year to appoint their elegant former midfielder Edu. Originally the German talent spotter Sven Mislintat was earmarked for the position before it was whisked away. Then the deal was almost agreed with the Spanish transfer guru Monchi until he suddenly U-turned. Arsenal had to wait for the third man, who has been Brazil’s general coordinator. During the lull the job has not got any easier.
