Gazidis gone

Postby Tenbob » Tue Sep 18, 2018 12:53 pm

Ivan Gazidis has left his role as Arsenal chief executive to join Italian club AC Milan.

The 53-year-old, who helped appoint Unai Emery in May as Arsene Wenger's successor as manager, will begin his new role on 31 October.

Gazidis said that the decision to leave after 10 years at the Gunners was "the hardest of my life".

"Change and succession is not only inevitable for a club like Arsenal - it is necessary," he said.

Raul Sanllehi, who was head of football relations at Arsenal has been appointed head of football, and Vinai Venkatesham moves from chief commercial officer to managing director.
“ Arsenal come streaming forward now in surely what will be their last attack. A good ball by Dixon, finding Smith, for Thomas, charging through the midfield. Thomas, it's up for grabs now! Thomas! ”

Gazidis was with us 10 years which was not a particularly successful period for us so I don`t think he will be greatly missed.

I think he did less than Steve Bould. The new people are a bit of a mystery to me. Bring back Dennis Hill Wood and David Dean I say!

Of all the hero`s in Arsenal`s illustrious history one man stands above all others, that man is Sir Henry Norris. Without him we still may be a minor club in South East London on a par with Leyton Orient.
