Arsenal CEO Vinai Venkatesham has reportedly spent Wednesday phoning Premier League chiefs to apologise for his club's actions with regards to the failed European Super League. The Gunners were one of six English clubs to sign up for the controversial scheme, but following a huge backlash from the footballing world they sensationally withdrew from the plans on Tuesday.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is facing a selection headache, with Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang both set to miss Friday's clash with Everton. The Gunners have endured a difficult week off the pitch, starting from hours before their disappointing home draw with Fulham on Sunday. Since that game ended, the footballing landscape has changed immeasurably due to the European Super League fiasco.
Backers for a European Super League have admitted that the plan cannot go ahead.
