Silva also hopes Edu will enjoy success as technical director and suggested previously playing for the club makes his job more challenging.
“And I’m glad that Edu came back to the game and I hope he is successful at Arsenal, as he was in Brazil with Corinthians and the national team.
“It’s a massive job, and because he played for the club, it becomes even harder.
“Sometimes people look back at what he did as a player and expect the same success in this position. I hope that will come.”
