Wilshere questions Arsenal decision to release Bould

Former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has slammed the club for allowing coach Steve Bould to leave the club.

Bould, who played for Arsenal and in the first-team coaching staff as assistant to Arsene Wenger for six years, has been coaching the club's Under-23 side since 2019.

Taking to Twitter, Wilshere asked why the club allowed Bould to leave despite being a good servant to the club.
"Can't believe it. Another proper Arsenal man gone! What is going on?? What a coach and what a guy… All the best bouldy," Wilshere tweeted.

The tweet came after the club's academy manager Per Mertesacker released an official statement on Bould's departure.

"Steve has been a fantastic servant for us on and off the pitch. His record as a player speaks for itself and he has been an inspiration to generations of young players coming through the academy.

"This has been a very hard decision to make. Steve's contribution to the under-23s and the club as a whole has been huge and he will always be an important figure in our history," Mertesacker said.
