Arsenal fans vent anger towards Kroenke ahead of AGM

Arsenal fans have voted against the reappointment of chairman Chips Keswick and non-executive director Josh Kroenke, and called for majority shareholder Stan Kroenke to attend today's annual general meeting to explain his vision for the club over its "governance failings".

A letter was sent by the Arsenal Supporters' Trust last week to Kroenke calling for him to meet the fans after failing to do so since he completed a partial takeover of the club in 2011.

Supporters have grown angry with Kroenke's ownership, which has coincided with a fall from being regular Premier League title challengers to a side that finished outside the top four for the first time in 20 years and is facing questions about the direction it is heading.

The letter read: "You made the following commitment in the formal takeover document: 'Mr Kroenke has made it a priority to meet with supporters and fan groups in formal and informal settings.

'He recognises that fans are at the heart of the club. Their opinions and involvement are important to him. Mr Kroenke fully expects himself, the Arsenal directors and club executives to continue to engage with supporters for the long-term good of the club.'

"Sadly, it is a commitment that has not been effectively fulfilled even once. Addressing shareholders at the meeting, many of whom are custodian supporters, would be a positive step.

"Should you decide to not address the meeting, then we would request as a priority a meeting after the AGM where you can convey your current approach and priorities for the club."

Arsene Wenger will be in attendance at the AGM, with up to 150 shareholders expected to attend. (© Independent News Service)
