Arsenal Women’s legend Kelly Smith has joined their coaching staff until the end of the season, bringing invaluable experience and expertise.

Smith, who has recently been working at Arsenal girls’ academy while completing her A License, will now work with the first-team squad a couple of times a week and be in the technical area for the UWCL semi-final against Wolfsburg on Monday.

Kelly Smith told“After speaking with Jonas [Eidevall] and Clare [Wheatley] it was a really easy decision to join the coaching set-up here. The club have been really supportive in helping me complete my A License and take the next step in my own post-playing career.

“It’s an exciting time to become part of this team – we’ve seen over the past few weeks just how resilient and together they are and I’m looking forward to working with them more closely on and off the pitch at this key point in the season.

“I love this club and it’s such a great feeling to be wearing the Arsenal badge once more.”
