Mark Warburton Being Lined Up to Become Arsenal’s New Academy Director

Mark Warburton is being lined up to become Arsenal‘s new Academy Director, according to reports.

The English manager has been out of work for just over two weeks after his acrimonious split from Rangers.

He spent 19 months in the job at Ibrox and led the club to promotion into the Scottish Premiership, but he resigned alongside assistant David Weir and chief scout Frank McParland and is now in a legal battle over it.

You’d think Warburton would be keen to remain in management considering his experience with Brentford and Rangers.

Yet he’s being linked to the vacant Academy Director role at Arsenal after the exit of Andries Jonker to Wolfsburg.

According to, he’s rated by Arsenal and has been sounded out over joining the Emirates club.

Warburton has had strong links with the club ever since launching the NextGen Series earlier in his career and has continued that with regular loan signings of Arsenal players while a manager.

He was a youth coach at Watford at the beginning of his career and then became Sporting Director at Brentford before taking over as their manager later on.

So perhaps a move to Arsenal – with their famed youth academy – would appeal to the Englishman?
