‘Amazing personality’, ‘Respect’, ‘Still a lot to address’ – These Arsenal fans react to Josh Kroenke interview

The son of Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke, Josh Kroenke, was recently extensively interviewed by the BBC. The American appears to be taking the reins at the Emirates Stadium and played a big role in the club’s redevelopment over the summer, which saw them invest heavily in the transfer market. 

The Gunners made six signings in the summer. The likes of William Saliba, Gabriel Martinelli, Kieran Tierney, David Luiz and Nicolas Pepe all arrived on permanent deals, whilst Dani Ceballos joined on loan from Real Madrid. The exciting business has instilled a sense of optimism at the north London club. 

Kroenke gave his verdict on the deals that were done, saying, “I think we had a very strong summer…We’re excited to keep pushing that now and into the future”. He also spoke about the job being done by Unai Emery, the tensions amongst the fanbase and his ambition to get Arsenal competing for Premier League and Champions League titles again.

Given the summer that Arsenal have just enjoyed, Kroenke deserves to be given the benefit of the doubt in terms of fans believing that he is serious about moving the club forward. However, he will have to maintain the progress he has initiated. The Gunners have plenty of catching up to do with the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City. However, it would appear that the club are finally taking strides forward again. 

Following Kroenke’s interview, many Arsenal fans took to Twitter to discuss what he said.
