​Arsenal not planning to appoint new chairman after Keswick retirement

Arsenal are not planning to appoint another chairman to replace Sir Chips Keswick.

The 80-year-old is retiring after spending seven years in the position.

Keswick has been on the club's board since 2005 and became chairman in 2013.

Since his role was in an advisory capacity, the day to day running and operations of the club are not going to change much.

The Telegraph suggests that no search for a replacement will take place.

Stan Kroenke owns the club, while Raul Sanllehi, the head of football, and Vinai Venkatesham, the managing director, do much of the day to day work.

Keswick had planned to retire at the end of this season even before the COVID-19 outbreak.
