 Arsenal Latest Sack News

After a massive backroom staff overhaul last year after Arsene Wenger’s departure, Arsenal still remain unsatisfied as Darren Burgess has been handed the sack.

Burgess was one of Wenger‘s handpicked staff members and was involved in a lot of behind the scenes work after Colin Lewin was let go after over 2 decades of service under Wenger.

Meanwhile, the head of High Performance Shad Forsythe was also touted for a switch to AC Milan under formed Arsenal CEO Ivan Gazidis. Gazidis was reportedly a fan of the Gunners’ employee and wanted to lure him to Milan. Moreover, Burgess was also spotted and pictured at AC Milan territory.

However, that seems to be far from the reason why the Director of High Performance is being let ago. According to David Ornstein, Burgess was sacked just says after Unai Emery‘s side got handed some humility back by Chelsea during their 4-1 win in the Europa League final.

Emery especially was unhappy with his colleague’s performance behind the scenes and led the task to replace him.

Consequently, Forsythe, who was close to a move to Italy has now been convinced to remain at the club with an elevated role of Director of High Performance. Whereas, Burgess will be leaving North London just 2 years after joining.

However, he may have a potential suitor as Gazidis is said to be one of the people who deemed him fit to employ at the Emirates and could sign him on as Forsythe is set to remain in London.

It’s not far-fetched to say Emery’s backroom staff and activities are yet to be perfected. Hopefully, letting go of incompetent names will benefit. Additionally, with Steve Bould, after years of just existing at Arsenal without any real tactical contribution, being replaced by Freddie Ljungberg shows a lot of promise.
