Regarding the move, Port Adelaide chief executive Keith Thomas said:
“We acknowledge that this is a life changing opportunity for Darren,”
“But what we’ve been able to do is work with Arsenal to enact a transition process which limits any impact or disruption to our football program for this year, and retain Darren’s expertise for our 2018 planning.
“We are appreciative of Arsenal’s understanding that the integrity of our football program is the absolute priority for our club.”
