first_imgStop complaining about Stan Kroenke’s takeover!That is the message to Arsenal fans from Simon Jordan, the former Crystal Palace chairman and talkSPORT presenter. ‘The fans had issues with Wenger, issues with Kroenke, issues with Usmanov, issues with wages, issues with transfer fees…. there always seems to be an issue!’ 👀@SJOpinion10 tells #Arsenal fans to stop complaining about Stan Kroenke’s takeover 🤫[📻 @JimWhite on talkSPORT]— talkSPORT (@talkSPORT) August 8, 2018 The Gunners’ faithful are not happy with the news Kroenke, the club’s majority shareholder, is taking full ownership of the club after agreeing a deal to buy Alisher Usmanov’s 30 per cent stake.The Arsenal Supporters’ Trust have branded the move a ‘dark day’ and said ‘taking the club private will see the end of supporters owning shares in Arsenal and their role upholding custodianship values.’But Jordan said: “The fans have to look at it pragmatically. Last year, the big thing was ‘we have to get rid of Wenger’. They had an issue with Usmanov, they have an issue with Kroenke, they have got an issue with the way the club has run, they had an issue with the wages players weren’t getting paid, they had an issue with transfer fees.“There always seems to be an issue at Arsenal.“He is going to own these shares, that is going to happen. We can stand on the sidelines and throw hand grenades at him but the more pragmatic scenario would be to watch what he does and see how the club advances because it is going backwards right now. And if it is going backwards outside the top four, it will eventually hit their balance sheet and Kroenke is not going to allow that.”Listen to what Simon Jordan had to say on talkSPORT IN FULL below: Arsenal fans make their feelings clear about Stan Kroenke center_img 1 getty last_img read more
