Arsenal chairman, Sir Chips Keswick, believes that the signing of Mohamed Elneny has added to Arsenal’s squad depth and will be a benefit to the side in the final months of the season.
Speaking as Arsenal released their accounts, Sir Chips also spoke about needing to be more consistent if they are to end their wait for the Premier League title in this ‘unpredictable’ season.
“This has been an unpredictable Premier League season,” SCK said.
“What is important is that we are in contention and I am sure we have the resources and ability within the squad to sustain a strong challenge.
“We know we will have to find greater consistency to maintain our challenge.
“The recent acquisition of Mohamed Elneny from Basel added to our strength in depth and we are seeing a number of potentially important players returning from injury. This bodes well for the final months of the season.
“The end of season run-in is going to be an exciting one and I am confident we will be very much at the centre of the action.”
Sir Chips was elected Chairman of Arsenal when Peter Hill-Wood stepped down due to ill-health in June 2013.
His family are described by Wikipedia as a ‘business dynasty of Scottish origin associated with the Far East since 1885’ with their fortune coming from a wide variety of interests including, but not limited to, banking, transport and property.
Sir Chips, or, Chippendale to give him his full name, is also a non-executive director of the Diamond company, DeBeers, Investec Bank and Persimmon plc, a housebuilding company.
His wife is the daughter of the 16th Earl of Dalhousie, Lady Sarah Ramsay.
