Tottenham consider former Arsenal key backroom staff member for head of academy role



Steve Morrow in the running for Tottenham head of academy role

According to the Daily Mail, former Arsenal star Steve Morrow could be set to become Tottenham’s new head of academy coaching and player development.

Morrow has been added to a shortlist of prospective candidates following the departure of John McDermott who joined the FA as assistant technical director.

Morrow was also in the fray to land the job at the FA that went to McDermott. He could now end up taking the latter’s place at Tottenham (h/t Daily Mail).

John McDermott has done a wonderful job at Tottenham

The former Gunners star is remembered for injuring himself while celebrating his winner in the 1993 League Cup final against Sheffield Wednesday.

He returned to Arsenal in 2008  as the Performance Supervisor, managing Arsenal’s international partnerships. He also assisted the club’s academies in Egypt and Ghana (h/t

He has built a solid reputation for bringing through a number of young talents and also served as the head of youth scouting at the club. The likes of Alex Iwobi, Eddie Nketiah, Reiss Nelson and Bukayo Saka all came through the youth system, before making appearances for the Arsenal senior team (h/t Daily Mail).

Although an excellent candidate, his long-running affinity with our arch-rivals could prevent him from joining us. He spent almost a decade as a player and was a staff member for over a decade before vacating his post upon Edu’s appointment as sporting director (h/t Metro).

Replacing Mcdermott will not be easy considering his success at Tottenham. A number of stars made their name under his at the youth levels. These include Harry Kane, Harry Winks, Ryan Mason and Andros Townsend.

Kane is undoubtedly the star of the lot. The England captain is the club’s third all-time highest goalscorer and is one of the best strikers on the planet.
