WSL: Smith joins Arsenal coaching staff

Former Arsenal striker Kelly Smith has joined the WSL club's coaching staff until the end of the season, calling the decision to return "really easy".

The 44-year-old is joining the first-team set-up on an informal basis, working with the squad a couple of times a week, and will be in the technical area for Monday's Champions League semi-final second leg against Wolfsburg at Emirates Stadium.

Smith has been working at Arsenal's girls' academy while completing her A Licence with the PFA.

Across three spells playing for the Gunners, from 1996 to when she retired in 2017, Smith scored 125 goals in 144 appearances and helped them claim a glut of silverware.
