BREAKING: Arsenal Legend Dies.

Tributes have now been paid to former Arsenal assistant coach Theo Foley, who has died at the age of 83.

The Irishman enjoyed a successful playing career with Northampton and Charlton before taking up backroom roles at a number of clubs.

During his playing days he represented Burnley, Exeter City, Northampton and Charlton, and also earned nine caps for the Republic of Ireland.

Gooner Fanzine wrote: "Deeply saddened to hear the news that Theo Foley, George Graham's assistant when Arsenal won their first title for 18 seasons back in 1989, has passed away.

"A good guy by all accounts. R.I.P."

Foley also talks affectionately about those sadly no longer with us – David Rocastle and Bobby Moore. Discussing purchasing a brown leather coat off the latter, he remarks that he never really got the recognition he deserved when he was alive.

He appeared nine times for the Republic of Ireland.

May His Gentle Rest in Perfect Peace.
