Hill-Wood: Insistent over Wenger
HILL-WOOD: WENGER WILL NOT GO
Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood has rubbished suggestions that Arsene Wenger's job is in doubt.
After six seasons without a trophy, Arsenal have endured their worst start in recent history after picking up just one point from nine, including an 8-2 drubbing at the hands of Manchester United.
The poor start has led to fresh angst amongst some sections of the Arsenal fan-base, who are far from happy having also seen star names Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri depart.
But Hill-Wood is insistent that the club's board are not even considering Wenger's position.
"It's complete and utter rubbish and absolute nonsense. I think he is happy enough and we are happy enough," Hill-Wood told the Daily Star.
Wenger brought a number of new players in on the eve of the deadline, and Hill-Wood is hopeful they can make an impact.
"We have brought some new players in and although I don't know that much about many of them I think, generally speaking, they are going to improve the squad," he added.
And Hill-Wood also responded to Barcelona vice-chairman Josep Maria Bartomeu's claim that Fabregas was a bargain, saying: "He is absolutely right - they did get him on the cheap. But he wanted to go back there and we respected that."
