Liam Brady

Liam needs little introduction to Arsenal fans. He was a dominant, cultured midfielder for the Club during the 1970s, making 307 appearances and picking up a winner’s medal in the 1979 FA Cup final.

He has run the Arsenal academy since 1996, presiding over on-field success - three FA Youth Cup wins and two consecutive Academy Premier League titles in 2009 and 2010 - while overseeing a flow of fine young talent through the facility’s ranks.
