Arsenal have named Luke Hobbs as interim Academy Manager after Andries Jonker left the position to become head coach at Wolfsburg yesterday.
Hobbs joined Arsenal in July 2013 and was the club’s Football Operations manager at Hale End. Prior to that he was a community officer at Peterborough United before spending time as centre of excellence manager at Cambridge United and then operating as head of coaching at Southend United.
The club have already commenced their search for a permanent successor to Jonker.
Meanwhile, Jan Van Loon, who was previously head of individual development, has been appointed as Arsenal’s U15 coach after Freddie Ljungberg joined Wolfsburg as an assistant to Jonker.
