“I try to help the club, coaching the under-15s,” he told Arsenal Player. “It’s great, they are a great bunch of lads and the coaches are great as well.

“I haven’t made a massive plan or anything like that yet. I coached some under-18s and I saw that they appreciated what I taught them.

“They hadn’t seen it before. I’m trying to give something back to football at the moment and it feels great.”
