Arsenal’s new managing director has promised to bring back the glory days to the club.
Vinai Venkatesham told a supporters’ meeting that the club is well placed off the pitch to help Unai Emery deliver success on the pitch.
Marketing expert Venkatesham, who is part of the shake-up following Ivan Gazidis’s announcement that he is leaving his role as chief executive, said they are intent on “bringing pride back to the fan base.”
Outgoing chief executive Gazidis admitted it was a difficult decision to leave but said it the challenge of taking over AC Milan and that he is leaving Arsenal in good hands.
Gazidis, whose job is effectively being shared by Venkatesham and Raul Sanllehi has been promoted to Arsenal’s head of football, said: “I’m immensely proud of the last ten years.
“But I leave the club in good hands. Vinai is the smartest guy I have come across in football and they are both very good, they have low egos and both will take the club forward.”
