Former United defender linked with Arsenal

Former Manchester United defender Gabriel Heinze could join the Arsenal coaching staff this summer.

The 45 year old is currently in London and is believed to have already had talks about coming on board under Mikel Arteta, although he also has the option of taking on the managerial job at San Lorenzo, back in his native Argentina.

It could be a summer of upheaval in terms of Arteta’s backroom staff at the Emirates. His main assistant, Albert Stuivenberg, continues to be linked with the Ajax job, whilst another of his trusted lieutenants, Carlos Cuesta, could be lined-up to take over at Norwich City.

Arteta himself has previously said that he does not want to stand in the way of anybody’s ambitions, and he is flattered if members of his team get linked with high profile jobs elsewhere.

Heinz has had a fairly modest coaching career so far, which included a brief spell in charge of MLS side, Atlanta United.
