John Jensen is returning to Arsenal as the club’s Scandinavian scout.
Former Gunners midfielder Jensen, 54, who became a cult hero during four years at Arsenal in the 1990s, has described it as a “dream job” and hopes it will lead to a bigger role in the future.
Jensen told Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet: “It is true that I have to work for Arsenal. On July 1, I started my job as head coach for the club in Scandinavia.
“Initially, I need to find talents for the club’s academy, but in the long term I hope to contribute with scouting players to the Premier League squad.
“After more than 20 years as a coach, I feel that I have my finger on the pulse of the football industry.”
