Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Steve Bould will be his assistant next season following the departure of Pat Rice.

Bould, who made 372 appearances for the club, will be promoted from his current role as youth team coach.

Wenger said: “I always want to give a chance to people who know how we coach.

“Steve is a very good coach and brings a continuation of our philosophy.”
