Arsene Wenger waving goodbye

Arsenal fans fume about ‘catalyst for change’ promise

‘Catalyst for change’

Back at the start of April, before Arsene Wenger put pen to paper on his new two-year Arsenal deal, Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis told supporters that the manager must become “catalyst for change” if he stayed at the club.

Today, many Arsenal fans feel they’ve been lied to.

That’s because the Times have reported that Arsene Wenger has won a significant internal battle with the Gunners board which has seen the entire Arsenal backroom staff earn new deals to stay on at the club.

The Times did note that the Gunners are considering making an appointment to help with the club’s recruitment plans – although this will not see a director of football named at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal fans fume

While Arsenal ended the 2016-17 season lifting the FA Cup, the club missed out on a spot in next season’s Champions League as they finished the Premier League season in fifth.

With most fans believing last year was a failure, Gooners are fuming with the new contracts to the club’s coaches.
