Wenger knows best!: Arsenal shareholder Usmanov backs manager

Arsene Wenger is the right man to continue leading Arsenal according to shareholder Alisher Usmanov.

The Russian-born Uzbek businessman, who owns 29.9% of the North London club, believes Wenger has proven himself as a quality boss and suggests he should remain at the helm at the Emirates Stadium.

"My point of view is that Arsene knows best," Usmanov said.

"Of course, we as shareholders do point out some drawbacks in managing the club, in steering its way through.

"But I believe he is a great coach and he has already proven that last season."
