Adidas CEO admits Arsenal aren’t that good – but reckons they’re close to glory


THE CEO of Adidas has sensationally admitted: Arsenal aren’t that good.

But Kasper Rorsted insists the Gunners are on the brink of something special following Monday’s stunning £300million kit agreement.

Arsenal will return to the German sports manufacturer when Puma’s five-year deal expires at the end of the season.

The new agreement is worth £60m a season – double Arsenal’s current earnings with Puma.

It puts the Gunners level with Chelsea’s Nike deal, and only Manchester United (Adidas) and Barcelona (Nike) will earn more from next summer.

Adidas CEO Rorsted concedes Arsenal have “underperformed” for a number of years, but has every confidence Unai Emery will get things back on track following a fantastic start to life in London.

Rorsted said: “When we look upon the Arsenal brand, it’s a stellar global brand that’s been underperforming in the last couple of years.

“We believe that long-term there is so much upside in Arsenal. Football is by far the single biggest sport in the world.

“If you look upon how they’re playing right now, 5-1 against Fulham, playing some of the best football, some of the best goals were made.

“Ramsey when he made the goal with the heel, it’s just stellar football. They had a good weekend but in the wrong kit!”
