Gazidis: Gunners set for future

Published Add your comment

Arsenal will be able to compete with the world's biggest and best clubs as UEFA's Financial Fair Play regulations become more rigorously enforced, chief executive Ivan Gazidis told shareholders at the Gunners' annual general meeting.

However, recent lacklustre displays have again brought the future of Arsene Wenger's side into question, as they look to recover from the £24million summer sale of captain Robin van Persie to Manchester United and to end a trophy drought which now runs back to the 2005 FA Cup.

"In the next two years, we will have the financial resources to sit and compete among the leading clubs in the world, which is an extraordinary achievement," Gazidis said. "Financial success is relevant because it supports our football vision... the money we make is made available to our manager and he decides how to invest those funds."
