Former Arsenal players in contention to become new assistant manager


Bookmark and Share

Saturday 28 April 2012

A host of former Arsenal players are vying to become Arsene Wenger’s new assistant manager should the incumbent Pat Rice step down at the end of the season, the Daily Mail has reported.



The group includes former Gunners captain Tony Adams, as well as Adam’s old defensive partner Steve Bould, and ex-Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann. Rice, 63, is reported by the Mail to be suffering from knee problems and considering leaving the position he has held since 1996 when his contract expires at the end of this season. Wenger has already admitted that if Rice does leave the Emirates Stadium, the new assistant manager will be somebody well versed in the club.


Rice first joined Arsenal as an apprentice in 1964 and went on to play over 500 times for the club as a right-back, making his first team debut in 1967 and staying on until 1980. From Arsenal Rice joined Watford and played more than 100 times for the Hornets, retiring as a player in 1984. Capped 49 times by Northern Ireland, after quitting as a player Rice returned to Arsenal as a youth coach before being appointed assistant manager by Wenger.
