Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog.
On today’s show we discuss the weekend’s big story: the departure of Raul Sanllehi as head of football. All concerned are trying to play it as amicable, mutual decision, but does that really make any sense given the timing of it, and how closely it’s come to an internal investigation by owners KSE. We chat about the former Head of Football and the work he did at the club, how the spotlight now falls on Technical Director Edu, and we explore his closeness to Sanllehi, the agent led approach and what he needs to deliver. There are also questions about new signing Willian, whether Vinai Venkatesham is the right man to lead the club at executive level, how our recruitment might work now and the big gap that exists within the structure, Willian’s signing and lots more.
Remember, you can send us questions via which we’ll try and get to each week. Send them to either @arseblog or @Gunnerblog (or both) using the hashtag #arsecastextra. Best to send them Monday morning so they get noticed more easily.
