Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis has confessed that the club is currently not where they want to be, but has expressed optimism that things will change at the Emirates
Arsenal are arguably at the lowest point of Arsene Wenger’s 22 years in charge with the club currently 12 points outside of the top four Champions League places and they were defeated 3-0 by Manchester City in last month’s Carabao Cup final.
Wenger, who signed a new two year contract at the club last season, has come under increased scrutiny with many fans and pundits calling for the Frenchman’s departure from the Emirates. However, they are still in the Europa League and Gazidis refused to discuss Wenger while speaking to the fans forum.
Sky Sports has reported the South African acknowledged that the club “isn’t in the place we want to be”, but he did confirm his determination to turn things around and “to compete and win the league”. While there have been many changes at the Emirates, which has involved investment, Gazidis expressed his confidence that Arsenal will once again be title challengers in the future.
Arsenal won 3-0 at Watford over the weekend and will now have switched their focus to their second leg against AC Milan in the Europa League, where the Gunners currently hold a 2-0 aggregate lead.
