Further to our story from earlier on about Dick Law talking at a Brazilian conference, and saying that Arsene Wenger has ‘strong support’ from the board, you can watch his presentation below.
There’s some over-dubbed audio at times, but he touches on the idea of a Director of Football, the structures currently in place at Arsenal, modern football and more.
There’s an early example of why we need to modernise early on when Law talks about a new area called ‘team performance’ which touches on team psychology. Players confidence being up or down, but also how communication has changed.
He says, “The whole notion of social media and the impact it has is something that we can’t get our hands around in the UK, and certainly not at Arsenal.
“All we know is it’s happening, it’s getting bigger, and we’ve got to get our hands around it.”
All we know is it’s happening?! And ‘certainly not at Arsenal’?! Blimey. Anyway, it’s worth a watch.
