    During his time at Arsenal, Venkatesham has overseen a period of significant change at the club. He has been involved in the development of the club’s new stadium, the Emirates, and has also helped to improve the club’s commercial operations.

    Venkatesham said in a statement: “I have had a fantastic 14 years at Arsenal and I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved together. I am grateful to the Kroenke family for their support and to all the staff and players for their hard work and dedication.

    “I am leaving Arsenal with a heavy heart but I am excited about the next chapter in my career. I wish the club all the best for the future.”

    Venkatesham’s departure comes at a time when Arsenal are facing some challenges. The club have not won a trophy since 2020 and they are currently in sixth place in the Premier League table.

    It remains to be seen who will replace Vinai Venkatesham as chief executive. However, his departure is another sign of the changes that are taking place at Arsenal.
