Wenger supports Arsenal board in Usmanov battle

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger supports the board in their battle with major shareholder Alisher Usmanov.

The billionaire oligarch, who is worth more than Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, has been critical of the board’s running of the club.

Usmanov says he would seek to pay off the remaining debt from building the Emirates Stadium, with making large transfer funds available.

However, when asked about whether he would like some of Usmanov’s money to spend in the transfer market, Wenger replied: "I’ve always said the same, which is that we want to produce the money from our own resources.

"Because we are in the Champions League, we can produce the money."
