Steve Bould is set to depart Arsenal this summer after spending over 30 years with the club as a player and coach.

The 58-year-old and Arsenal are parting ways, with Bould relinquishing his role as coach of Arsenal’s Under-23 side.

Bould has been connected with the Gunners since 1988, when he joined the club from Stoke City to bolster their defence.

The then centre-back enjoyed an illustrious playing career with Arsenal, winning the top flight three times, the FA Cup twice and the League Cup once.

After retiring, Bould worked at Arsenal as a coach and he was initially in charge of the club’s Under-18 side.

He led them to FA Youth Cup glory in 2009, with the likes of Jack Wilshere in that side who beat Aston Villa in the final.

Bould then worked as an assistant to Arsene Wenger when Pat Rice retired in 2012, but in 2019 he left that post to take charge of the Under-23s.

He has been in that role for two years, but he is now set to leave this summer as Arsenal continue to restructure the club.

The final stages of Bould’s departure are being worked through and an announcement is expected in due course.
