Chief executive of Arsenal Football club Ivan Gazidis has admitted he sees no reason why manager Arsene Wenger should not remain at the helm for the long-term.
Gazidis believes Wenger, who last summer signed a new contract extension to the end of the 2017 season, remains the right man for the job as long as he feels able to do it.
While speaking with Straits Times, Gazidis said
“He’s been incredibly important for us… You never know, but he’s in great health and he’s doing incredibly well. He’s full of energy and enthusiasm, his hunger is still there, and I’d never put an end-date on it,”
“He’s also been a passionate supporter of the club, in a sense a fan of the club. He’s put the club’s progress and development above his own personal interest. We believe we have the right man in the club and we’re very pleased that he’s full of health and willing to carry us forward.”
