Arsenal are overseeing widespread changes behind the scenes in north London following the departure of long-serving boss Arsene Wenger, which has also seen members of his backroom staff have their time with the club come to an end.

The latest departure has seen head of medical services Colin Lewin axed after 23 years at the club, with other members of the medical team asked to reapply for their jobs, while significant coaching exits occurred last week.

This is due to Wenger’s successor likely wanting to bring in his own team but there will still be familiar faces around London Colney, although assistant manager Steve Bould is yet to decide whether to stay at the club.

The Telegraph states Bould is waiting to see who Arsenal bring in as Wenger’s replacement before committing himself to the club, though it’s likely he’ll take up a different role to the position he’s held alongside Wenger in recent seasons.

Should he remain, Bould is expected to return to coaching a defence that needs plenty of work after a poor Premier League campaign, which saw the Gunners win just one game on the road in 2018 and concede an astonishing 51 goals.
