C’est une pointure le Edu
Technical Director candidates
From the media links to technical directors, it would appear that Arsenal/Sanllehi have a threefold criteria:
Has an affiliation with Arsenal
Has experience in the role at the top level
Has a relationship with Unai Emery.
Edu has been Director of Football previously at Corinthians, though he is currently employed as the Technical Director of the Brazil national team. Edu fits the first criteria, as he is an ex-Arsenal player, but also the second due to the aforementioned roles he has held. Strangely, Edu was also managed by Unai Emery at Valencia from 2008–2009. Edu would likely be the ideal fit for Arsenal. He ticks every box, and has performed very well at every club he’s been at. He seems to have been the first candidate approached, and having worked for the Brazilian national team, he would seem to fit the “technical director” role of being more focused on developing a style, academy, whilst allowing Raul and Huss to continue having says over transfers and contracts.
It seems that the prospect of Edu coming to Arsenal was short-lived however, as the same outlets who reported the initial approach have since reported he has decided to stay. By the time Arsenal fed Ornstein the information, he was not even featured on Ornstein’s list.
