Andries Jonker take over Arsenal Academy

From Arsenal.com

Arsenal have appointed Dutch youth development expert Andries Jonker as the new head of the Club’s Academy.

Jonker, 51, is currently the Assistant Manager at Bundesliga team VFL Wolfsburg and will join Arsenal on July 1, 2014. He previously spent seven years developing and implementing youth coaching reforms for the KNVB (Dutch FA), in Haarlem and Amsterdam, and two seasons working as a senior coach in the youth setup of the Dutch Federation. This included managing the U15 and U21 national teams.

Jonker also served as Technical Manager for the KNVB for six months before becoming Assistant Coach to Louis van Gaal at FC Barcelona and FC Bayern Munich where he later had a spell as interim Head Coach. He was appointed Assistant Manager at VFL Wolfsburg in 2012.

Jonker’s appointment follows Liam Brady’s decision to leave his role as Head of Youth Development and the Academy. Brady, 57, will work with Jonker to ensure a smooth transition and continue his association with Arsenal as a Club Ambassador. Brady is already an Ambassador for the Arsenal Foundation.

Arsenal Chief Executive Ivan Gazidis said: “Youth development is a key part of our philosophy at Arsenal and I am delighted that Andries is joining us. He has an outstanding track record in developing and identifying young players and creating systems to bring the best out of them. I know he will build on the tremendous work which has been done by Liam and his team over many years.”

Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger added: “I am very pleased that Andries is joining us. He has a big reputation in the game and was a key part of the team which developed the structures which are now producing such strong young players in Holland. I look forward to working with him. I would also like to thank Liam for his work which has been outstanding over many years.”

Good signing imo. If theres one thing the Dutch know, its how to provide an excellent footballing education to youngsters, in order for them to firstly understand the game from all positions and how their position affects others around them.

The FA would have done well signing this guy to turn around English grass roots football, good that we stole in and nabbed him.

Looking forward to see what he does. Also, happy that Liam Brady will stay on in some capacity, a true Servant to the Arsenal.

"Andries Jonker has received a lot of criticism in the Dutch media. Especially Johan Derksen (Voetbal International) has been very negative about him. Once, he called him 'a complacent brat that I can not take seriously'.

Cause ?
Worked for years with van Gaal and from my point of view van Gaal is one of the best dudes as regards "eye for talent and develop them" so he can't be that bad apart from that I never heard anyone really complain about his work here in Germany.

Arsenal to lose Terry Burton after overlooking him for academy job

• Arsenal Under-21 manager to leave in the summer
• Burton overlooked as Andries Jonker appointed


Arsène Wenger's decision to bring in a Dutch coach to replace Liam Brady at Arsenal has led to problems with another member of his backroom staff and will prompt a reshuffle behind the scenes at the end of the season.

Terry Burton, Arsenal's Under-21 team manager, has decided to leave in the summer after being overlooked to take over from Brady as the head of Arsenal's academy and youth development setup. Wenger is bringing in Andries Jonker, currently assistant manager at Wolfsburg, and Burton will move on, two years into his second spell on the club's coaching staff.

Burton was appointed in July 2012 after the retirement of Pat Rice, with Steve Bould and Neil Banfield moving up to work for the first-team in the most significant re-organisation of backroom staff since Wenger arrived in 1996. However, the Arsenal manager chose against promoting him into Brady's role, preferring to go abroad to bring in a coach who has previously worked as an assistant to Louis van Gaal at Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

Burton, a part of Arsenal's FA Youth Cup-winning team in 1971, helped to bring through Tony Adams, Paul Merson and Martin Keown during his first coaching spell at the club. He has since had a spell as manager at Wimbledon, as well as various coaching roles at Watford, Cardiff City, West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield Wednesday, and he was among a four-man shortlist recently to become the new manager of England's Under-20 team. The Football Association decided instead to give the job to Aidy Boothroyd.

Wenger is preparing for his 1,000th game at Arsenal in their match at Chelsea on Saturday. Arsenal are planning to mark his long-service with a presentation on Friday and the League Managers' Association also intends to honour the Frenchman.

Never been a massive fan of Burton tbh. I would promote Gatting and bring in someone new to replace his old role.

I think the whole youth set-up needs some fresh faces. Steve Gatting has done really well this season and has adopted a more pressing game without the ball and is playing a combo of zonal and man marking on set-pieces which I am a big fan off.

Doesn't Jonker mean 'younger' in Dutch?
