Wenger backed to be brave in the transfer market by Arsenal executive Gazidis

Arsene Wenger has been backed to act with bravery in the transfer market by Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis, the Daily Telegraph has reported. Gazidis added that he felt confident trusting Wenger was the only way to bring trophies back to the club.

Arsenal have not picked up any silverware since winning the FA Cup on penalties against Manchester United in 2005, and have seen players the calibre of Samir Nasri, Gael Clichy, Emmanuel Adebayor and Robin van Persie all move to other Premier League clubs in search of greater success or heftier pay packets. Meanwhile, both Alex Song and Cesc Fabregas decamped to Barcelona, Song moving this summer and Fabregas last.

Wenger’s policies in the transfer market have been criticised repeatedly, with the Telegraph pointing to comments made by van Persie and also the club’s second-largest shareholder, Alisher Usmanov, but Gazidis has defended the manager, pointing to the club’s better record of success than some of its rivals who simply throw money at a problem.

He said: “When you look at what Arsene has done, within the overall constraints, he has outperformed our spending every single year he has been manager. It is extraordinary.

Gazidis added: “We’re not dominated by fear. Arsene never succumbs. We try to do more than win, we try to win with style. I know we haven’t won trophies in recent years. There’s no one here that doesn’t feel the pain of not being able to do that.
