Josh Kroenke showed Arsenal owners’ true weakness during Super League apology

Arsenal chief Josh Cronke issued a severe apology to supporters for the Gunners’ part in the European Super League elimination.

But in an attempt to appease fans on a stage on Thursday afternoon, the son of the owner of ‘Silent Stein’ insisted that the North London club was not one of the driving forces behind ESL.

Instead, they announced that they had only jumped on board because they feared missing.

He and chief executive Vinay Venkatesham did nothing but weaken the club’s leadership as they declared that Arsenal were “not the authors of this proposal.”

Instead, Venkatesham – who apologized to club players and manager Mikel Arteta at a meeting in London Colony on Wednesday – insisted: “On this project, the train was going out of the station and we decided to join it.

“We made a bad decision, a terrible one.”

Amid widespread fan anger, the club on Wednesday issued a full apology to supporters behind the collapse of the Super League.

But that ‘The Arsenal Board’ was signed and fans were desperate for either absentee owner Stan or his son to show some kind of initiative with a backlash amid fury.

Josh Cronke, whose attendance at the Emirates has increased over the past 18 months, has since surfaced, becoming a heated call with groups of supporters.

“Leadership is about recognizing when you are wrong, correcting and apologizing,” Kroenke said.

“We asked ourselves, what is worse: the European Super League, or the European Super League without an arsenal?

He said, “We also asked ourselves what the fans want?” Global fans want Arsenal vs Barcelona as many times. English fans want to watch more big matches, but you want your cold nights in Stoke.

“We got it wrong.

It was never our aim to harm English football.

“We can talk on FFP about racism, but football pyramid stability requires us to ensure that we are maximizing revenue, but we went about it wrongly on this occasion.”

Kroenke certainly did not descend lightly and was particularly reprimanded. Arsenal supporters trust Member Akhil Vyas who categorically declared: “Don’t you understand English football?

“You don’t interact with fans, you don’t have a clue.

“English football is clearly not for you, you should quit.”

Kronke also confirmed that the club would have to pay a fine for leaving the Super League.
