Arsenal Official Admits Preparations For CHL Miss

Arsenal’s chairman Peter Hill-Wood has admitted that there’s a possibility for the Gunners not to catch a Champions League spot at the end of the season and that the board is preparing financially for that exact possibility.

“We are hanging on in there, no more,” he told the Daily Star of the club’s current position.

“From a financial point of view, not qualifying for the Champions League is quite a blow.

“We have been planning for not qualifying every year, so it’s not a disaster, but it would be nice if we could.”

Wenger – Gervinho needs to relax himself

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger is not frustrated with Gervinho’s misses, but thinks that the winger should try to be a bit more relaxed when he gets his chances, and then the goals will come. The newly transferred striker joined Arsenal this summer from Lille, and in the last few games he missed some very big opportunities to score a goal.

“The problem with Gervinho is that he’s in the opposite position to Robin van Persie. “

“He is desperate for a goal and once you are in that situation maybe you start to think about it too much. “
