Despite rumours that his job could be on the line, Arsenal chief executive, Ivan Gazidis, insists that the manager is safe at the club and has the full backing of the club’s board.
The North London outfit have had a dismal start to the Premier League season losing against Liverpool and Blackburn, not to mention an 8-2 flattening by Manchester United.
However, speaking to Sky Sports News, Gazidis said: “No, he shouldn’t be worried. What I think Arsene is concerned about is what we have to do to set our course straight on the pitch. Arsene and Stan [Kroenke] and I have been working very closely together, there is no division between us, and there is a collective responsibility for what happens at the club.”
He added: “The portrayals of him as being a broken man could not be further from the truth. Arsene is incredibly focused on what he needs to do and addressing the issues that he has seen.”
The minority shareholder is also pleased with the draft of summer signings the club has made, going on to say: “We have got a deep and strong squad, with a good mixture of youth and experience, and we know that we have the talent level to put things right.”
