Arsenal lucky to have Kroenke says Gazidis

Posted on June 11, 2013 by admin

All of you Arsenal fans out there who have been wanting the club to spend money over the last few years, and not sell off the crown jewels like Cesc Fabregas, Robin van Persie, Ashley Cole and Samir Nasri while we were at it, have got it all wrong, according to the Arsenal chief executive.

Ivan Gazidis met with hundreds of Arsenal supporters at the Emirates last night to answer questions about the way the club is run and the plans for the future. Not surprisingly, quite a few of the questions centred on transfer money and trophies. Strangely enough, that seems to be quite important to the fans, so Gazidis assured us that there is plenty of money to spend this summer, although he did qualify that with familiar strains of there being a lack of `top, top` players available.

Also, the fans who would like an owner who puts money into the club to ensure success and seems genuinely interested in winning things have got it wrong. What you really need is a bloke you never see who has nothing to do with the club.

“We are fortunate that he doesn’t treat the club as his own personal fiefdom,” said Gazidis. “as a reflection of his ego and as a personal playground.

“We haven’t seen a lot of the negatives that come with much of the ownership around the world. We feel our ownership situation is healthy and sustainable.”

Gazidis also insisted that Kroenke does not take any money out of the club, fow which I suppose we should be thankful. He has seen the value of his stake almost double by building the Emirates stadium and with the huge increase in TV and sponsorship deals for the Premier League’s big clubs though, so he is not exactly running a charity. If his policy does start to bring success, great. If not, there will be a lot more fans complaining, and doing it a lot more vocally.

      You have no stake in Arsenal, you are only a noise maker. The people who owns Arsenal have their own objective of building an enduring legacy capable of surving the unpredictable financial climate without its account being padded by dubious money from sugar daddies. If you are not proud of the club’s policy and achievement, please decamp and join money bag clubs that have questionable wealth to squander on trophies. Arsenal is a decent club run on sound financial principle and business ethics; it is not a pet or a toy or a Chess board for manipulation at the whims and caprices of the owner. I am proud of the club because I do not belong to the congregation of those who don’t care for a person’s source of wealth as long as the cash keep flowing in. Anyone who support a thief is a thief.
