The would-be-Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen has become the latest player to acknowledge the good work done by the new assistant manager Steve Bould.
The former Ajax man is pleased with the defensive discipline brought by Bould in the new training regime and expects it will benefit the team in the coming season.
Bould was also a defender in his prime time and according to the 26-year-old that helps, because he works brilliantly with the defenders having a keen attention to details.
Speaking to Arsenal Player he said “Steve is really good to work with, especially for defenders as he has been a defender himself,”
“He knows what it is all about and gives us a lot of tips. He works a lot on the shape of the team and that is very important, so I am very happy he came to work with the first team.
“He is very focused on details. A lot of players, because we are getting older, we know how to play. But he looks at details and the shape of your body and to be honest I am learning a lot from him.”
He hopes that in the coming season Arsenal will get the team shape right and the players are really working hard on it.
He added “We have been working on it throughout pre-season and we are focusing on that.
“I think having your shape right is one of the most important things in football, whether you have the ball or don’t have the ball. We are working really hard on that and Steve does the job really well.”
