Goalkeeper coach Christophe Lollichon has now become Arsenal’s latest acquisition from Chelsea, after he was allowed to move to the Emirates Stadium from Stamford Bridge, according to Metro.
The goalkeeper coach who joined Chelsea in 2007 on Petr Cech’s personal recommendation is now moving to Arsenal for the same reason.
Petr Cech had completed an £11million move to Arsenal earlier this summer and had wanted the goalkeeper coach to move with him, but Chelsea had refused to part ways with their long serving coach.
But according to fresh reports making the rounds, the Blues have now agreed to allow Lollicoln leave Stamford Bridge, amid reports that he would be replaced by Mourinho’s man Silvino Louro who has since served as Lollichon’s Assistant.
With former Arsenal goalkeeper coach Tony Roberts having already moved to Sawnsea City last month, there is now space on the Gunners staff list for Lollicoln.
The Frenchman had worked with Cech at Rennes and has worked with a number of top keepers including Michael Landreau, Andreas Isaksson, Christophe Revault and Patrice Luzi.
We hope he continues to keep Cech at the top of his game.
