Arsenal confirm Lucassen appointment as he sets out 'football philosophy'

Marcel Lucassen is already talking about the plans he has for Arsenal.

Arsenal are set to appoint Lucassen as their director of football from August 1.

Lucassen will join from Dubai side Al Nasr, where he's spent the last three years.

"What I'm going to do at Arsenal is to further develop the football philosophy, as I did earlier with Al Nasr and the German Football Association," he told Limburger.

"And it was time to start working closer to home so that I could have my family in Blitterswijck."

Arsenal confirmed Lucassen's appointment yesterday, along with the hiring of Lee Herron as head of academy football operations. Herron arrives from Reading.
