‘Kroenke Out!’ – Arsenal Fans Start Online Campaign To Remove Majority Shareholder From Club


Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to protest against the club’s American billionaire owner Stan Kroenke.

The #KroenkeOut campaign follows on from Manchester United fans who made #GlazersOut the top trending subject in the UK last night.

Gunners fans have grown disenfranchised with their club’s owner ever since he begun his gradual takeover in 2007.

As of 26 September 2018, Kroenke Sports Enterprises (KSE) became the sole owner of the club.

But as the 71-year-old businessman’s influence over Arsenal has grown, results on the pitch have worsened.

Unai Emery will lead the club into their third consecutive Europa League campaign after another finish outside the top four last season.

A lack of transfer funds has riled supporters too, with just £45m available for the manager to invest in new players this summer.

With no Champions League football to offer, the Gunners are no longer shopping at the top table when it comes to incoming signings.

Arsenal have been linked with moves for Yannick Carrasco and Bournemouth’s Ryan Fraser, but fans are not overly impressed and are demanding change.

“Fans need to do more than #KroenkeOut,” wrote one disgruntled fan on Twitter.

“Boycott the tickets, everything for all I care we are in #Uel for 3 seasons consecutively. But anyway #KroenkeOut.”

A second echoed the sentiments, tweeting “Club needs to start again #KroenkeOut.”

A third asked for solidarity from Arsenal fans. He added: “Its time for all Arsenal fans around the globe to take action especially those in UK #KroenkeOut.”

Kroeke has no plans to sell the club, which Forbes values as the seventh most valuable in the world at £1.8bn, in the immediate future.

Moreover, his son, Josh Kroenke, being heavily involved also shows a commitment to long-term ownership.

“The club is moving backward but the owner does not care,” tweeted another Gooner.

“No ambition, no champions league football for 3 successive seasons. We are tired #KroenkeOut.”
