Arsenal chairman Keswick: Wenger in charge of transfer policy

Arsenal chairman Sir Chips Keswick says transfer policy is the responsibility of manager Arsene Wenger. At yesterday's AGM, Keswick was asked directly by one shareholder whether funds had been made available to Wenger in order to buy a defender.

He made it crystal clear where the decisions on football matters rested at the Emirates Stadium.

"I don't think that my wish or intention to double guess what Arsene Wenger wants to do - as you know, your board backs him 100 per cent. If he has a plan, we back him, if he doesn't have a plan, we keep quiet," the chairman said.

"So don't let's be in a muddle about who calls the shots about football at the Arsenal Football Club. It is not the chairman, it is not the fans, it is Mr Arsene Wenger."
