BREAKING! 😲 Arsenal Manager resigns

This news comes as a shock to the whole Arsenal fans and the entire staff of the Emirates as Arsenal head coach resigns.




Joe Montemurro, manager of Arsenal Women’s team, has announced that he will leave Arsenal at the end of this season. He called it the “hardest professional decision” of his life, adding,

“I absolutely love this job and this club, the club I have supported all my life. I’m hugely grateful to the club for their unrelenting support during my time here and in understanding and respecting my decision.”

There will be huge sadness at the announcement both from Untold, to whom he freely gave a terrific interview, and from Arsenal Independent Supports Association, whose AGM he came to a couple of years back.

Now neither of those events might sound that remarkable in isolation, but the Untold interview was totally off the cuff and the AISA talk involved Joe travelling from an away match in Europe, and coming straight to the AISA meeting. What was doubly amazing was he walked in, still in his official Arsenal travelling gear, saw me and immediately remembered who I was. Which is a damn sight more than I can do most mornings.

A statement from Arsenal said, “Joe has done a fantastic job over the past three years, leading us to a first Women’s Super League title in seven years in 2019, four cup finals and a Champions League quarter-final, while building a talented and competitive squad. …

Joe has decided to take a professional break to recharge and dedicate more time to spending with his family.”

Speaking of his decision Joe said, “My three-and-a-half years at Arsenal have been a fantastic adventure, the highlight of my coaching career. I have had the opportunity to work with and learn from some of the best in the industry on and off the pitch.

“This has been the hardest professional decision of my life, as I absolutely love this job and this club, the club I have supported all my life. I’m hugely grateful to the club for their unrelenting support during my time here and in understanding and respecting my decision.

“I’ve had a fantastic time here at Arsenal and I am proud of what we have achieved. I must thank all the fans, players, staff and the club. This club has always been a leader in women’s football and I will be cheering us on to the next level as I watch as a passionate and enduring fan.
