Wenger's successor won't enjoy same authority at Arsenal

LONDON (AP) Whoever succeeds Arsene Wenger at Arsenal won't be allowed to amass the same power.

"Arsene earned his position at this club over 22 years," Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis said on Friday. "I don't think that there will be other managers, if you look forward, who will have kind of authority at the top of the game with the biggest clubs.

"Obviously, it is the most important appointment that any club makes and the most important employee that any club has so I don't diminish the role. I just think it would be unrealistic to think that anybody comes in with the breadth and scope that Arsene had at Arsenal."
