How Wenger is influencing the appointment of a sporting director



French boss Arsene Wenger has left the North London outfit Arsenal since the end of last season but latest reports hint that he still has an influence in decision makings at the Emirates Stadium.

The North London outfit have been in the search for a new technical director since the departure of Sven Mislintat as they have not been able to secure a replacement for him after missing out on AS Roma chief Monchi who is now with Spanish La Liga outfit Sevilla.
