Arsenal have announced that head of football Raul Sanllehi is leaving the Gunners (officially).
“While this will not happen overnight, I believe we have many of the critical ingredients to do so. There are many positives to build on across the club.
“While football faces uncertainties ahead as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, I am confident Arsenal will emerge strongly and look forward with confidence.”
Sanllehi, who described Arsenal as a “true footballing institution”, said: “I am proud to have been part of its history and I thank Stan and Josh Kroenke for this opportunity.
“Working with Vinai, we have built a top team for the future. Mikel [Arteta] has made an extremely positive impact since his arrival [as head coach] and has formed a strong team with our technical director, Edu.
“The academy is in very safe hands with Per [Mertesacker], and Huss Fahmy is a talented and highly-capable leader of our football operations.
