Arsenal’s aim is to win the Premier League and Wenger is the best man for the job? by DN
If you had been reading many posts on here for the last few years, you would have thought that there were thousands of Arsenal fans that predicted that the Gunners would never win the Premier League again as long as Arsene Wenger was in charge, never mind get as far as the Quarter-Final’s of the Champions League.
But there is a couple of people who would disagree with all these protesters, and they are in fact the people who actually run the club! The majority owner, Stan Kroenke, said today after revealing that Wenger had signed a new contract: “Our ambition is to win the Premier League and other major trophies in Europe,” said Kroenke.
“It’s what the fans, players, staff, manager and board expect and we won’t rest until that is achieved.
“Arsène is the best person to help us make that happen. He has a fantastic track record and has our full backing.”
The fans that have been protesting have based their objections to Wenger new contract on the fact that the club has stagnated in the last ten years, with us practically scoring the same amount of points in the League every year, and getting knocked out at the Round of 16 in the ECL. But there is one person who thinks we have ‘grown beyond all recognition’. Step forward the Arsenal CEO Ivan Gazidis. “There is no complacency anywhere at this club,” he said.
“Our goal is to compete for and win trophies here and in Europe.
“Everything we do is designed to make that happen and we will be working hard on and off the pitch this summer to improve and make a strong challenge next season.
“The club has grown beyond recognition in every aspect in recent years and we have the platform to be successful and meet the ambitions we and our fans share.”
Where is this growth? He MUST be talking about the club’s finances, because he surely can’t be talking about results on the pitch. They have hardly changed at all.
So, who is the ones that are deluded? The Arsenal fans? Or Kroenke and Gazidis?
