Arsene Wenger the “best man” for Arsenal – Stan Kroenke

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger is the “best man” to win the Premier League title for the club, owner, Stan Kroenke has said.

Kroenke said this after the Frenchman officially signed a new two-year contract.

The French gaffer’s future at the Emirate was uncertain following the conclusion of the 2016-17 Premier League season, in which the Gunners failed to qualify for the Champions League and also finished behind north London rivals Tottenham.

Wenger has now committed his future to the club, despite continued fan protests throughout the season.

Kroenke insists that Wenger, who has spent 21 years at the club, can continue to take the club forward as they aim to return to English football’s top table.

“Our ambition is to win the Premier League and other major trophies in Europe,” Kroenke said.

“It’s what the fans, players, staff, manager and board expect and we won’t rest until that is achieved. Arsene is the best person to help us make that happen. He has a fantastic track record and has our full backing.”

Meanwhile, Chief executive, Ivan Gazidis, has rubbished suggestions of a malaise at the club, hinting that there will be summer arrivals to strengthen the squad.

He said, “There is no complacency anywhere at this club. Our goal is to compete for and win trophies here and in Europe.

“Everything we do is designed to make that happen and we will be working hard on and off the pitch this summer to improve and make a strong challenge next season.

“The club has grown beyond recognition in every aspect in recent years and we have the platform to be successful and meet the ambitions we and our fans share.”
