Josh Kroenke has said Arsenal owners have no plans to sell the premier league club following calls for Dangote to take over after ESL actions.
Arsenal were one of six English clubs who signed up for the Super League but were forced to withdraw in Tuesday after serious protests from supporters and football bodies all over Europe.
Kroenke, whose father Stan Kroenke struck a deal to take full control of Arsenal in 2018, said they had “no intention of selling” and that they believed they were fit to “carry on in our position as custodians” of the club.
“We were put in a very difficult position by forces outside of the club,” Josh said on Sky Sports.
“We have the same plans for summer that we had several weeks ago and I’m still excited about those.
“I might be met with mistrust and scepticism, but over time I hope to establish some sort of relationship with our supporter groups and show them we are capable of taking our club forward.”
Josh Kroenke also said the decision to sign up for the controversial Super League was taken to safeguard the future of the club.
“The first question we asked was: what is worse, a Super League or a Super League without Arsenal? We decided a Super League without Arsenal was the worst,” he added.
Kroenke said the question of what the fans wanted was one that demanded a “much more complicated answer” than they had time to contemplate.
“From an English fan’s perspective … they want to see more big matches,” he added.
“But as one Chelsea supporter wrote on a sign that I saw online the other day, you still want your cold nights in Stoke.”
