As well as being great news for Arsenal fans who are looking forward to Arsene Wenger being able to sign more top class players like Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil before the start of next season, the recent words from the Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis suggest that the club’s hierarchy are no longer happy to accept that we are doing well to stay in the Champions League.
As reported by The Mirror, Gazidis has declared himself to be a bit disappointed that the early season struggles have seemingly left the Gunners too much to do to catch the league leaders Chelsea. The American also hinted, however, that the club would be doing everything in its power to make sure that the manager has the tools to carry on from what he is doing with the team now.
The Arsenal executive said, “We are not happy but we are going to keep pushing to the end and see how far we can go.
“We are happy with the way the squad has developed and we are very focused how we can make a positive end to the season.
“After that it will be a question of how can we progress the team further so that we can have an even better season next year. We have a squad that’s clearly coming together. It’s a relatively young squad so it will continue to improve.”
You have to admit that Wenger has done brilliant things to get us where we are with a young and relatively inexpensive squad but now it is time for the owner Stan Kroenke and the Arsenal board to really step up and give the Frenchman the financial help he needs to take the Gunners on to the next level.
Is that really set to happen or is this just more positive sounding stuff that turns out to be nothing but words?
