Arsenal appoint Sven Mislintat as head of recruitment

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger welcomed Mislintat’s appointment on the club’s official website, even though it could be seen to dilute his power at the Emirates.

It is understood that Mislintat will report to chief executive Ivan Gazidis, rather than Wenger himself, but the Frenchman said: “We are delighted that Sven is joining us. Identifying and developing talent is a core part of our philosophy and Sven has an outstanding track record over many years. We look forward to him taking our existing recruitment approach forwards.”

Hoping the signings of Sanogos and Denilsons will be a thing of the past.

I wonder if they'll communicate in French, German or English ???? Whichever Wenger tells him to use, he'll have to get used to saying :-

Jawohl Arsene
or
Oui Arsene
or
Yes Arsene

cos Arsene only wants Yes Men

This could be an interesting development or just more smoke and mirrors, only time will tell.

I can't find the link now but some click bate site was implying we are trying to pry ZZ away from Real to replace OGL, never going to happen but just imagine OGL trying to tell him what to do from a directors chair, a swift head butt and its lights out Monsieur :rubchin:

He replaces Steve Rowley, the cúnt that has caused all of our problems for the last 10 years. In Arsene's mind anyway... :fryingpan: :dancingbanana: :lol:

This guy will do exactly what Rowley did; give a list of names of young prospects to Wenger and Wenger will decide who he thinks has the nicest technique for tippy tappy and they'll get a trial. :roll:

"Will report to Ivan Gazidis"?? Haha don't make me laugh. He'll report to Gazidis the fact that he's handed a list of names to Gazidis's boss, Wenger. :roll:

I highlighted the fact over 10 feckin years ago that Wenger who had a leaving dinner with Dein at the time, would end up being a Dictator in the mould of Mao Tse Tung, he is the ultimate controlling freak of a puppet master the world has ever seen, and there were a whole lotta people who backed this bastard!

Look, (sorry, I meant Looooook) we can all take the piss here but this means NOTHING, it means ZERO, ZILCH, De NADA, until they get the root cause of our problems out of the fucking club and we all know that root cause is Vic Akers. :censored:
