Arsene Wenger lacks board support from Arsenal - Alisher Usmanov

Arsenal's second-largest shareholder Alisher Usmanov believes manager Arsene Wenger "doesn't have enough support" from the club's board.

Wenger has come under fire from fans this season after a slow start in the Premier League and a quarter-final exit to Bradford City in the League Cup.

Usmanov says Wenger has "many, many difficulties" at the club, but feels selling star striker Robin van Persie to Manchester United in the summer was "a mistake".
