Arsenal have recruited a new first team coach known as ‘Tekkers Guru’, according to reports.

Hussein Isa, who played for QPR and Tottenham at youth level before undergoing a spell at Hashtag United, has built a reputation online as a technical specialist after showcasing his skill and free-kick ability. 

‘Tekkers Guru’ has played Futsal for England and also has experience doubling for stars such as Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero and Eden Hazard in commercials.

The 34-year-old coach will now reportedly join Mikel Arteta’s backroom staff as a technical coach, tasked with providing specialist assistance to the Gunners’ attacking stars.

According to The Athletic, Isa will work with both the first team and academy stars who are on the brink of breaking into the senior squad.

He is set to start his role at the club in the summer, when Arsenal begin preparations for the 2023-24 campaign.
