Brady: Will leave Gunners role in 2014

The 56-year-old former Republic of Ireland midfielder made more than 200 appearances for the Gunners between 1973 and 1980, winning the FA Cup in 1979, before joining Juventus where he went on to claim the Serie A championship twice.

Brady - who also had spells in management with Celtic and Brighton, as well as being assistant to Ireland boss Giovanni Trapattoni - took over as Arsenal's head of youth development and academy director in July 1996, helping bring through the likes of current England internationals Jack Wilshere and Kieran Gibbs.

Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis said: "Liam has a deep understanding of what it takes to discover and develop a talented youngster into someone who can perform at the highest level. He has made a massive contribution to Arsenal Football Club.

"It will be difficult to find a worthy successor but we will be looking for someone who can build on what Liam and his team have created."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
