Bould 'privileged' to take Rice role
Steve Bould has described his appointment as Arsenal's assistance manager as "an absolute privilege".
The former Gunners defender, who had been working in the club's youth set-up, has replaced Pat Rice as Arsene Wenger's right-hand man. Former reserve-team coach Neil Banfield has become the club's new first-team coach. "It is more than excitement, it is an absolute privilege and an honour," Bould told Arsenal Player. "I know I have some big boots to fill with Pat having spent 44 years at the club and that is going to be the hard part. "I will be learning on the job a little bit but myself and Neil Banfield are more than excited."
