The search for a new Arsenal technical director has temporarily stalled

Published

on


The process of former Arsenal star Edu becoming the new technical director at the Emirates has stalled, at least until after the Copa America in Brazil is completed in July.

Former invincible Edu is the technical coordinator of the Brazil national team and therefore has to remain focussed on his current role at such a critical time for his country.

However, on a positive note, talks have taken place which Edu himself has confirmed.

“I had a conversation with Arsenal. There’s an interest,” said Edu.


“I was very clear: ‘I am 100% focused on the Copa America. I’m not speaking about absolutely anything because of the Copa America.

“If, by any chance, you [Arsenal] want to speak to me after the Copa, propose something after the Copa, I will make myself available so that we can talk. As for now, I am fully focused on the Copa.”

It is perfectly understandable that Edu will not enter into further talks with us or commit to anything so close to the Copa America tournament but that does not mean that it is not frustrating and inconvenient.

The summer transfer window will be opening soon and we need that position filled urgently and while Edu would be a good fit we cannot wait forever.

Hopefully, Edu has given some sort of private assurance to the club that he is likely to take the position without making it known publicly

Selling Aubameyang debate shows something has gone very wrong at Arsenal

Published

There is an argument that now is the right time to sell Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and use the money raised to bring in new players.

Arsenal, it is being argued, can replace Aubameyang within its ranks with the likes of Gabriel Martinelli and Eddie Nketiah primed to play in his role in the event he is sold.

What utter nonsense.

Not the proposal, that on the face of it does make sense but the idea that it has to be Aubameyang sold to raise funds that is absolutely ridiculous in my opinion.

When a club is unable to sell its deadwood and instead have to offload its top scorer then you know something has gone badly wrong somewhere.


Selling players to raise funds is normal transfer business, Liverpool sold Coutinho, Tottenham sold Bale, Man Utd sold Ronaldo and so on but each time they were forced to do that in the face of massive offers and the respective players desire to leave.

That is not the case with Aubameyang.

Arsenal has a ton of players that are simply not up to scratch, their names are so common I do not even have to name them but it is the Golden Boot winner that is being mooted to be sold.

Our top-six rivals have no issues selling their fringe players and for the most part, getting a decent transfer fee in return and yet, for some reason, Arsenal struggle to do the same.

If we sell Auba and keep the likes of Mustafi I would be utterly speechless and the sad thing is, I would not be surprised if that actually happens.
