Wright calls for Arsenal board shake-up

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has called for the club’s board to resign after the Gunners were knocked out of the Capital One Cup away at League Two side Bradford, The Daily Star reports.

The League Two side led for over an hour of the game before a late Thomas Vermaelen goal sent the game to extra-time. Neither side could find a winner in the added period, so penalties was the decider and Vermaelen, Maraoune Chamakh and Santi Cazorla all missed to send Bradford through to the semi-finals. Arsenal fans are becoming increasingly furious at the club’s lack of results and Wright has called for the club to bring back David Dein to resolve the issues which have seen Arsenal trophyless for eight years.

Wright is the second highest goalscorer in the club’s history and has called for some board members to step aside so that Dein can resume his place on the board, a position he left in 2007 after a bust-up. The 49 year old tweeted: “I think a few board members would have to go for David Dein to come back. Please G*d, let that happen.”

Wenger has come in for criticism from some Arsenal fans, with the vast majority calling for him to leave the club, and Wright also tweeted about the potential for a mid-table finish and the Frenchman leading them to it. Arsenal are seventh in the Premier League table, 15 points away from league leaders Manchester United, and travel to Reading this weekend with the pressure firmly on Wenger.
