Arsenal technical chief Edu will aid the search for a new manager to replace Joe Montemurro as boss of the Gunners’ WSL side.
Montemurro, 51, revealed he will be leaving the club at the end of the season after joining in 2017.
Although Arsenal say they are “disappointed” with his decision to depart, officials have begun the hunt for his successor immediately.
And club chief, Vinai Venkatesham said he will be involved in the process, alongside Edu and Clare Wheatley, Gunners head of women’s football and their people director Karen Ann Joesphides.
Venkatesham, 40, said: “In terms of process, there will be a few of us involved to find Joe’s replacement.
“We will have the management of Arsenal Women, our people director, our technical director, Edu, and of course I’ll be involved in the process.”
