Arsenal Owners: Stan Kroenke And Josh Kroenke Remain 100% Committed’ To Premier League Club

Arsenal owners Stan Kroenke and Josh Kroenke say they continue to be “100% committed” to the Premier League club and “are not selling any stake”.

Arsenal legends Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, and Patrick Vieira have joined Spotify founder and billionaire Daniel Ek’s bid to shop for the club.

More than 1,000 fans protested against the present owners on Friday.

“We haven’t received any offer and that we won’t entertain any offer,” the Gunners owners said.

“Our ambition for Arsenal remains to compete to win the most important trophies within the game and our focus remains on improving our competitiveness on the pitch to realize this.”

The fan protest outside Emirates Stadium before Arsenal’s home defeat by Everton followed the club’s involvement within the proposed European Super League (ESL).

The Gunners were one among 12 founding members of the league but they withdrew just 48 hours later and apologized to fans.

Stan Kroenke is a 73-year-old American owner of numerous sports franchises, including NFL side the Los Angeles Rams and NBA team the Denver Nuggets.

He took a 9.9% stake in Arsenal in 2007 and slowly built up his shareholding until it reached 62.89% in April 2011.

Kroenke’s son, Josh, maybe a director at the club and heavily involved in its day-to-day operations.

Swedish businessman Ek, 38, worth a reported $4.7bn (£3.38bn) tweeted that he would be “happy to throw my hat within the ring” if Kroenke Sports Enterprises (KSE) wanted to sell.

Arsenal is 10th within the Premier League with five games left to play in Mikel Arteta’s first full season as manager.
