Pierre Emerick AubameyangArsenal Managing Director, Vinai Venkatesham has come out to say that he is impatient for the club to compete for trophies at home and abroad.

This is coming after he took over from Raul Sanllehi as head of football at the Emirates Stadium.

According to him, the club is lucky to be followed all around the world by hundreds of millions of passionate fans all across the globe and the time has come to start making them happy with important trophies.

He added that sacking Emery and replacing with Arteta was not part of the plan, but the club was still rewarded with a trophy at the end of the season.

His words, “We are fortunate to be followed all around the world by hundreds of millions of passionate fans and we have an extraordinary history of success,”

“Our fans expect and our fans demand that this football club wins trophies and is at the top of the game both here in England, but also in Europe.

“What fuels me is delivering on the expectations and delivering in regard to what our fans demand of us.”

“We started last season full of expectations, we looked forward and we looked upwards and unfortunately it’s not worked out in the way that we wanted it to,”

“We obviously changed coach in the middle of the season, which obviously was not part of the plan, and then we’ve had the coronavirus hit us and hit everybody this spring.

“But despite all of the challenges this season has thrown at us, our squad and our players and our football staff kept fighting and they kept fighting all the way to the end.

“We obviously changed coach in the middle of the season, which obviously was not part of the plan, and then we’ve had the coronavirus hit us and hit everybody this spring.

“But despite all of the challenges this season has thrown at us, our squad and our players and our football staff kept fighting and they kept fighting all the way to the end.

“I think we can look forward with some real optimism. I think, in Mikel Arteta, we have an absolutely fantastic, dynamic head coach, and if we look at our academy, I think we’re in really, really strong hands with Per Mertesacker.

“We did not achieve our expectations last season and we need to do better and we need to improve. But I think we’re absolutely on a positive trajectory and we’re on the right path. The message really is [that] we need to improve. We’re really focused on where we need to improve and there’s lots of things that we need to do.

“We are impatient. We know we’re not where we want to be and we are impatient, because we want to get to where we want to be, as quickly as we possibly can. I think the key message for our fans is that we all want exactly the same thing.

“We all want Arsenal Football Club to be back where it belongs, competing for and winning the biggest trophies in the game. That’s what fuels us, that’s what our focus is and we ultimately want to do that so our fans all across the world are proud of their football club.”
