End of an era. The man behind Wenger finally leaves Arsenal


Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis will leave the Gunners at the end of October and will start a new chapter in his career with Italian giants AC Milan. Gazidis has been with the London side for the past 10 years and believes that it is the right time for him to step aside so that the club could be under ‘new leadership’ to take into the future.

Although it is very hard to do – the hardest decision of my life – I believe that, after 10 years, it is the right time for me to step aside to allow new leadership, energy and ideas to take the club forward into this exciting new era.“, Gazidis said.

Gazidis will be replaced by head of football relations Raul Sanllehi who will become head of football and commercial officer Vinai Venkatesham who will become managing director.

Deputy chairman Josh Korenke, son of owner Stan said that the club will miss the wisdom, insight, and energy that Gazidis brought to the plate for the club but has full confidence in Sanhelli and Venkatesham.

“We are confident we have outstanding people in Raul and Vinai, and we look forward to working with them and coach Unai Emery to continue to move the club forward on and off the pitch.”, Korenke said.
