Tributes have been paid to Danny Fiszman after the Arsenal Director passed away on Wednesday at the age of 66.

"I am very sad. Danny was much loved at Arsenal Football Club, not just for his extraordinary vision and commitment driving our Club forward but because he was a respectful gentleman whose passion for Arsenal was at the heart of everything he did. We will miss him deeply. I am honoured to have worked with Danny and I know that the many Arsenal staff who knew him at the Club share this sentiment."
Ivan Gazidis, Chief Executive

"Danny did an enormous amount for this Club. He came on the Board in 1992 and he was a visionary Director. He and I became very close friends, we travelled to all the away matches together and in the year 1999 we first embarked upon the new stadium project. He and I were delegated by the Board to lead that and I really could not have had a better person to work with. He was highly intelligent, he was good at everything he did and I was very fond of him. He was a very special man."
Ken Friar, Board Director

"Danny’s unwavering commitment to Arsenal Football Club and the sport of football was amazing and inspiring. He taught me so much about the proud history and traditions of Arsenal. We not only lost a great business leader but a good friend. Our thoughts and condolences are with his family at this difficult time."
Stan Kroenke, Board Director
