Thomas Vermaelen hailed Steve Bould

Arsenal star Thomas Vermaelen has been impressed by new assistant manager Steve Bould’s methods.

The 49-year-old replaced Gunners legend Pat Rice as manager Arsene Wenger’s number two and has already impressed one of the possible captains should Robin van Persie leave.

“Steve is really good to work with, especially for defenders as he has been a defender himself,” the Belgian told Arsenal Player.

“He knows what it is all about and gives us a lot of tips. He works a lot on the shape of the team and that is very important, so I am very happy he came to work with the first team.

“He is very focused on details. A lot of players, because we are getting older, we know how to play. But he looks at details and the shape of your body and to be honest I am learning a lot from him.”
