Arsenal supporters group want board to be more accountable

An Arsenal supporters group believe the club's board need to look at themselves rather than just the narrower issue of boss Arsene Wenger's performances.

An Arsenal supporters group believe the club's board need to look at themselves rather than just the narrower issue of boss Arsene Wenger's performances.

The Arsenal Supporters' Trust (AST) has called for the board to reassess their own role in the team's success and create a more challenging environment.

"At the meeting today the board must review its approach to much more than just the position of Arsene Wenger," an AST spokesperson said.

"The board needs to consider recruiting new members with exposure to the football world who can support and challenge Wenger to be a better manager.

"It's wrong to focus on just him at the moment. Every single non-executive director of the club is over 70 years old and it is time for some fresh blood. We would call for Stan Kroenke to meet with (second-largest shareholder) Alisher Usmanov to work out how to make it stronger."
