Ian Wright has hit out at the Arsenal board for the way they just let Arsene Wenger do whatever he wants at the club

  • Arsenal board long criticised for their lack of footballing know-how
  • Arsene Wenger is widely expected to sign a new two-year deal despite growing protests from fans
  • Players say they back Wenger, well, most of them – Alexis has said nothing

Ian Wright has been speaking recently about his anger at the Arsenal board and how none of them seem able to make any decisions.

“This is typical of the lack of leadership and direction at Arsenal. No one is making any decisions. Who’s running the club? Arsene is, obviously,” Wright said.

“He’s in the position where he can just do what he wants. He should be forced to say what he’s going to do.

“Somebody upstairs should be telling him, ‘Either you’re staying or you’re going. You must make an announcement’.

“Arsenal and the fans need stability over what is going to happen with the club’s future.

“The people above Arsene, if there is anyone, need to sort everything out.

“This wouldn’t happen at any other club — but it is at Arsenal because the board are so happy and so relaxed.

“They’re fat cats, business people. The club’s just a massive cash cow to those people.

“All they’re doing is ignoring the way fans feel.”

Arsenal host Manchester City in the Premier League after what seemed like a never-ending interlull following the defeat at West Brom.

Win and things will seem slightly brighter. Lose and all bets are off.
