Huss Fahmy is set to become the latest high-profile executive departure at Arsenal.
The head of football operations is currently serving out his notice period with the club, although all parties insist that it is an amiable departure. He will be replaced but, whoever comes into the job is not expected to have the same power when it comes to contract negotiations.
Instead this will be the responsibility of the club’s in-house legal team, who will support Technical Director Edu and manager Mikel Arteta who will decide what happens on the football pitch itself.
Fahmy joined the Gunners from Team Sky in 2017, and, almost other things, he is credited with introducing an incentivised performance related model, and for helping to get a number of eals over the line.
His departure will follow that of the club’s Head of Football, and a number of other reducndancies which have been announced in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
