Wenger wants new support

22 Apr 2007 - 13:48:25

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is hoping to be able to bring in a man of his choice to replace former Gunners vice-chairman David Dein.

The long-serving Dein left the club last week after a boardroom disagreement over a possible takeover of the Premiership club, leaving Wenger shorn of the support of one of his closest allies.

"There will definitely be a director of football coming and it will definitely be my choice," Wenger said after the 2-2 north London derby draw with Tottenham Hotspur.

"That is something I will be looking at soon. At the moment I am doing both jobs - the one that David Dein used to do and my own.

"I was in a good position before, because I would handle the football side and David would do the ugly stuff, the business.

"Now it's all down to me. It's difficult because that side of it is very time-consuming."
