Arsena’s executive chief commercial officer, Tom Fox, has said in an interview that nobody at Arsenal is bothered to care if Arsenal never wins any match, and money is the most important thing for them.
Shaun Custis, a writer in the The Sun Sport, has wrote an article in the English newspapers reporting what Arsenal’s chief commercial officer, Tom Fox, said in an interview.
Tom Fox said:”Nobody at Arsenal is that bothered about the team actually winning games.”. Tom Fox continued:”our brand is defined by more than winning”
