Buck stops with 'passive' Kroenke for Arsenal fans

"Anyone that knows me knows how passionate I am about Arsenal Football Club", Josh Kroenke said in an interview published by several British newspapers on Tuesday.

The club's owner has just paid $2.6 billion for his American football side Los Angeles Rams' new stadium while Arsenal are set to spend a third consecutive year outside the Champions League.

"While we're not going to be in the market for some of the top players in the world at the moment whilst they are the top players, we're actively scouting the globe to find the next big thing to become great at Arsenal Football Club".

His son Josh, now serving as a member of the Arsenal board, responded to the letter by saying he "respects" the fans' passion but also noting that it "hurts" to have his own called into question.

Despite that distraction and Arsenal's uncertain future on the field, Josh Kroenke is convinced they will eventually restore the Gunners to the club's former glories.

"Twelve years on, Arsenal are to play in the Europa League for the third year running". I saw and felt the same frustration that was visible on the face of every Arsenal fan, player and staff member, and the most important thing that I saw in that moment was how much people care and a resolve to face the failure and work even harder.

The 39-year-old, who was in attendance on Monday night as Arsenal kicked off their pre-season campaign with a 3-0 win against Colorado Rapids in Denver, said: "I'd like to start by clarifying that my family owns Arsenal together, and when it comes to the Club, my father and I are in constant dialogue".

"I was there in Baku [for the Europa League final] on behalf of KSE [Kroenke Sports & Entertainment], my father and family".

We know this can bring uncertainty, and perhaps everything we've done in the past 12-14 months have brought about additional uncertainty during a period of unease when supporters, coaches, players, and management are rightfully frustrated by lack of success on the pitch.

"He joins Freddie (Ljungberg), Per (Mertesacker) and Steve Bould, all winners with Arsenal DNA, who love our club".

"It is sad that an institution like Arsenal FC has such passive ownership". None have won a title under his control. There is simply no better feeling in sport than winning at the highest level.

"I've sat down with supporters' groups".

It added: "Our club feels like an investment vehicle, personified by the owner's statement that he didn't buy Arsenal to win trophies".

"If we're going into the finer points I'd have to defer to these guys [managing director Vinai Venkatesham and head of football Raul Sanllehi]".

And now the north London club have made just one summer signing, with Brazilian teenager Gabriel Martinelli the only new addition to Unai Emery's squad.
