Arsenal fans want owner Stan Kroenke out, beg Dangote to buy club

2 Min Read

Arsenal fans have demanded the ouster of owner Stan Kroenke, urging Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote to buy the club.

The fans made the call on Tuesday while criticising the club’s decision to participate in the controversial Super League.

On Sunday, the North London club were named as one of 12 founding members of a new breakaway European Super League, along with Premier League rivals Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

In a message on Tuesday, the club said its earlier decision to participate in the new competition was a “mistake”.

“As a result of listening to you and the wider football community over recent days we are withdrawing from the proposed Super League.

“We made a mistake, and we apologise for it,” the club said.

However, despite the dramatic U-turn which saw the Gunners pull out of the Super League, the fans are insisting on Kroenke’s ouster.

The call became stronger after Executive Vice Chairman of Manchester United, Ed Woodward resigned.

Club legend, Ian Wright is one of the club’s supporters demanding Kroenke leaves.

Between 11:16pm and 11:20pm on Tuesday, Wright tweeted the simply message: “#KroenkeOut”.

The fans are encouraged in their call on Dangote to take over as the President of Dangote Group has never hidden his interest in acquiring the club.

He said in 2018 that he would likely launch a bid to take over the club in 2020.

Dangote later stated that he would be ready to launch a bid after the completion of his ultramodern refinery in Lekki area of Lagos in 2021.
