Arsenal and Pedro Martinez Losa have parted ways.
The Spaniard was with the Gunners for three years but it’s now been revealed by the club’s official website that Losa and Arsenal have parted ways.
Losa joined from Rayo Vallecano Femenino in 2014 and has gone on to help transform Arsenal Women.
The 41-year-old led the Gunners to the Continental Cup in 2015 and, last year, the FA Cup after his side beat Chelsea in front of a record crowd at Wembley.
“It has been an unforgettable three-year journey for me at Arsenal FC,” said Losa.
“I wish to express my gratitude, respect and admiration towards all of the first team and youth players that I was lucky enough to work with during my time at the club.
“I also had the privilege of working with a fantastic group of people within my coaching staff and the rest of the club’s employees.
“A special thanks goes to the Arsenal fans who made me feel at home right from day one and have offered the team their unwavering support. We made some great memories together.
“We played our part in taking the club on to a new level in terms of professionalism. The FA Cup triumph at Wembley and our Continental Cup success are occasions that will forever remain with me.”
The BBC initially reported the news on Tuesday night but it’s now official.
Arsenal beat Birmingham City 3-2 during their opening game of the season, going 2-0 down and staging an amazing late come-back. However, they’ve since gone on to draw once and lose once, leaving them down in sixth position in the FA WSL 1 table.
Right now, Chelsea are at the top with nine points from three games. They’re flying. And to be so far behind the league leaders so early in the campaign is a little concerning.
While it’s not clear that this is definitely the reason for Losa’s departure, this seems to be the most likely explanation at this point in time.
Hopefully, whoever comes in next can revitalise the women’s side and help them turn a corner.
