Arsenal considering move to replace struggling Edu as technical director

Posted by

Arsenal are reportedly considering bringing Marc Overmars back to the club as they weigh up replacing the struggling Edu as technical director.

The Brazilian’s reign at the Emirates Stadium has not gone at all well, with Arsenal spending huge sums of money on questionable signings who haven’t really lived up to expectations.

According to the Daily Express, this could now see Arsenal try something different, with Ajax chief Overmars looking an impressive potential candidate.

The Dutchman, like Edu, is also a former Arsenal player, having formed a key part of Arsene Wenger’s 1997/98 double-winning side, and he’s now forged a fine career for himself in Ajax’s recruitment team.


It would be interesting to see if Overmars would be tempted by an offer to return to Arsenal, who might do well to make major changes as the current regime doesn’t seem to be working at all.

As well as Edu’s future being in doubt, there are also big question-marks over manager Mikel Arteta, with the Telegraph suggesting he may have just five games to save his job, with former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte a possible candidate to replace him at the Emirates.

  1. If Edu is Arsenal’s problem let him be replaced immediately by Marc Ovarmas because Marc Ovarmas is an up grade to Edu in any thing concerned football please the earlier the best you see what he Ovarmas has done with Ajax so it not something of wasting time please let him take charge immediately so we can breath fresh air

Again Arsenal need to upgrade in every areas both in coaching and world class players there’s are urgent need Arsenal are out of track I know the position of Chelsea and Manchester city before but now Arsenal is nowhere near them because of managerial structure they put in place good investment bring good profits let Kroenke borrow ideas from Ibrahamovic he will see the gain he will make and where Arsenal will be.

  3. After Arsenal had won the cup,expectations were high.Abu was given huge wages. Wilian was a free and on high wage.
    Performance went down.
    If Mc wants Abu let him go.It wont surprise me he will help them win the cl and other trophies as well.Arsenal can only indulge in self pity if this scenario comes true.
    That shows how far Arsenal have declined .sa

  4. Edu should never gave been given the job..We had Sven Mislintat at Arsenal, who had already proven himself many times over, and he wanted the job..But instead we employed Edu, which gave Mislintat no option but to leave.. Edu had no experience at being a technical director, and his record since he was brought in has been nothing short of inept. He should be fired immediately and someone with a proven track record brought in asap.
