Arsenal and Marcel Lucassen have parted company.

Lucassen was appointed the club's head of coach and player development in the the summer of 2018, in the wake of the departure of Arsene Wenger. 

The north London giants confirmed the 57-year-old Dutch-born coach has resigned for 'personal family reasons'.

Luke Hobbs is now taking on the responsibilities as head of academy coaching. 

In a Gooner exclusive last month, we revealed a member of staff tested positive for Covid, at the club's academy Hale End, with club acting immediately to shut the centre at Wadham Road, Walthamstow.

Allegations surfaced relating to a senior academy staff member travelling abroad before returning to Hale End, prior to embarking on various on-site meetings for at least two days, reportedly without knowing the results of a Covid test.
