Arsenal chief: We need club unity

Ramsey gives statement in Italian at first Juventus press conference

Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis has urged the club’s fans to unite and give manager Arsene Wenger all the support they can muster in the upcoming season.

Wenger penned a new two-year deal with the club in May, despite protests from a section of supporters who wanted to see the back of him, and Gazidis has begged the protesters to get behind the Frenchman.

"I want the atmosphere to be united," Gazidis said at a fans' event, according to the BBC.

"It has been a struggle because we haven't had that. There has been disagreement. There has been a lack of unity and dissatisfaction. The board knows that.

"I beg you, please come together and give our manager and this team support."

When asked about Arsenal's plans for the transfer window, Gazidis added: "We're looking for top-quality players.

"We've got three times as many scouts as we had four years ago. I believe that to be a world-class football club, you've got to be world class off the pitch."
