Arsenal are set to allow Gerry Peyton, along with Boro Primorac and Tony Colbert, leave this summer when Arsene Wenger leaves the club.
Peyton has been Arsenal’s goalkeeping coach since 2003 and goalkeeping has been one of Arsenal’s major issues since Jens Lehmann left in 2008.
While Arsenal have had a series of decent goalkeepers at the club since then, you wouldn’t think it as they all continue to make the same sort of mistakes week after week after week.
The keepers change, but the problems remain the same and the one constant has been Gerry Peyton.
It is also rumoured that Arsenal had a choice between keeping Peyton or Wojciech Szczesny after a falling out between the pair.
Arsene Wenger opted for his coach over the keeper who will now replace Gianluigi Buffon at one of the best clubs in the world.
It is not clear yet what role Steve Bould will play in the new setup but Sami Mokbel, writing in today’s Daily Mail, claims that the club want to get an ex-player on board the new management team.
Names like Patrick Vieira, Mikel Arteta and Thierry Henry have all been mentioned.
Bouldy, however, has not.
