Liam Brady believes that Arsene Wenger still retains the full support of the Arsenal board and has called on them to give him the money to invest properly in the team.
The current Director of Youth Development’s comments will do little to bring clarity to the current situation at the club: is the under-investment in the team due to financial restriction or Wenger’s choice?
Brady seems to suggest that the manager needs more cash to splash, saying, “I hope that Arsene is given the resources to spend and have a go at putting us back where we were eight years ago.
“I think he should be given that chance and, from where I am in the club, I don’t think there’s any pressure on him – I think the board are 100 per cent behind him.
“When you get beat by your neighbours it can get a lot of people talking, particularly people ringing up radio stations and things like that. But I think we’ve got to keep it all in perspective.
“The majority of the fans are behind him, the staff are behind him and I think the board are behind him. So we wait to see what the future brings.
“I think Arsenal’s demise has been exaggerated.”
The reality of the Arsenal situation is that the manager does retain the full support of the board, and will continue to do so unless something really drastic happens in the last 10 games of the season.
The debate about whether he’s the right man to spend the money won’t stop, however.8,926 views
