Arsène Wenger has praised the appointments of Terry Burton, Pat Holland and Kwame Ampadu - and believes they have the qualities to get the best out of Arsenal's next generation.

Burton returned to Arsenal last month as reserves and head development coach to resume a long-standing association with the Club, while Holland succeeded assistant manager Steve Bould as coach of Arsenal Under-18s this week.

Ampadu - himself a graduate of the Club's academy - has rejoined the Gunners as a youth development coach and Wenger thinks that academy director Liam Brady has chosen well.

"I let Liam deal with that, with the youth team," Wenger told Arsenal Player. "I think a club works when everybody does his job and that's Liam's job.

"Of course we were in touch about it and he informed me about what he was planning. He has gone for experience and it is highly defendable because they are quality men who have a lot of experience, who have a big passion for the game.

"The problem with young players is that you need a lot of patience and experience, you need a lot of humility as well - and you get that with age. I believe they will do very well and develop some very good young players."
