Arteta says Josh Kroenke has the same ambitions and will deliver

Arteta reveals his relationship with club’s owners by Yash

After signing a contract with Arsenal until the summer of 2025, Mikel Arteta only had good words for the owners of the club.

Stan Kroenke became the majority shareholder of Arsenal Football Club in April 2011, having previously been appointed to the board of directors in 2008.

In the past few years his son, Josh Kroenke, has been heavily involved with the running of the club.

And the Gunners manager is confident that the red half of North London is in the right direction under the Kroenke’s ownership.

Starting by stating his relationship with the owners, Arteta said, “Probably the way I would define it, it would be empathy, the same purpose and trust. Empathy because the moment I got to know Josh [Kroenke], from the first meeting I got a real sense that the energy was flowing. We were really clear and direct. He was showing the same ambition as I was.”

The Spaniard added, “He could see the club at the same point and he wanted to take the club the way I wanted to do it. So everything that he’s said, and that Stan has said, when I’ve been together with both of them, they’ve always delivered.

“I think that’s been a relationship that both ways has been exactly the same, so I’m extremely happy with them, with what they are doing, with their involvement, with the commitment they are showing and with the relationship that we have built together.”

Ever since Josh Kroenke has shown his increased involvement with the North London outfit, the club has indeed spent a lot of cash.

And although the money has not been spent smartly on some occasions, it does show ambition from the owners side to some extent.

Many reliable news outlets have again stated that the Gunners will be busy in the upcoming transfer window too.

That would have certainly made the Arsenal faithful happy.

The club still has a long way to go to start competing for the biggest competitions and a willingness to spend big is definitely good in this journey we are on.

  1. I thank you for your article.

    You wrote: ”Many reliable news outlets have again stated that the Gunners will be busy in the upcoming transfer window too.”

    I would appreciate it if you would identify one may be two or three ‘reliable news outlets’ as I would like to read them. Thank you.

      1. Well it can happen that they are good for a laugh.

        I appreciate your sense of humour. 🙂

  2. The rewards of a good work is more work, so congrats Mikel, I always give you my support from day one at the club because I believe you will take us back to where we belong in near future so keep proving your critics wrong by bringing more success to the club.

  3. From Kroenke OUT to Kroenke IN – at a cost of only 150M in one transfer window. Another 150M from the owner for the up coming window could mean Kroenke FOREVER! Upwards up onwards with our “sugardaddy!!
