Arsenal assistant coach Jens Lehmann announced today that he would be leaving his role at Arsenal saying that the “attitude” from the “2004 group is not needed there anymore”

The former German international hit out at the attitude at the club following his release from Arsenal under new boss Unai Emery.

Lehmann made 147 Premier League appearances for Arsenal and was part of the 2003/2004 ‘Invincibles’ team who went through the league campaign unbeaten but only spent one year as a coach at the North London club.

Arsenal today announced Emery’s backroom staff with Steve Bould staying on as assistant to the new manager.

Juan Carlos Carcedo, Emery’s long-time assistant, will also be alongside him in the dugout.

First-team coach Pablo Villanueva, strength and conditioning coach Julen Masach, goalkeeping coach Javi Garcia and data/video analyst Victor Manas complete Emery’s staff.
