Set piece specialist Andreas Georgson has joined Arteta’s coaching staff at Arsenal, according to David Ornstein of The Athletic.
It is being reported that he started working with the Gunners on Saturday. He joins Arsenal from Brentford where he was the head of set pieces and individual development. He joined Brentford in September 2019. Prior to his time at Griffin Park, he was an assistant coach at Swedish club Malmo.
Mikel Arteta has identified set pieces as a perennial problem at Arsenal and feels that there is room for improvement in this particular aspect of the game for the senior team. The hope is that Georgson can help the Gunners get better at set pieces in both boxes and turn what is currently a weakness into a strength.
Specialist coaches are in demand in the world of football today. Liverpool, for example, have been working with a throw-in expert for over a year.
Arsenal’s assistant goalkeeping coach, Sal Bibbo, is believed to have left the club. The Englishman joined the club in the summer of 2017. Inaki Cana is the current goalkeeping coach at the club and joined the North London side from Brentford soon after Arteta became head coach.
