Arsenal Fans Go Into Rage Mode As Owner Receives £6m In Payouts [Tweets]

Arsenal supporters are going into rage mode once again…

After the London club completed just one signing over the course of the summer, it has been revealed that Arsenal are now forking out £3 million to their American owner Stan Kroenke.

The payment, as reported in the Independent, “is believed to be in relation to advisory ‘services’ that Kroenke Sports and Entertainment (KSE) have provided in the last year.”

The American owner has now received £6 million in payments from the club and it is understood that Arsenal directors were put under huge pressure from shareholders last year to explain what exact ‘services’ he was providing for such a huge fee.

In an attempt to explain the large sum forked out to Kroenke, chairman Sir Chips Keswick told the Telegraph:

“KSE is one of the most respected and successful sports organisations in the United States, operating in the most sophisticated sports business market in the world.

There was no competitive tender for these services as they are directly available to us. We are entirely satisfied that the fee was appropriate.”

That explanation isn’t cutting the mustard with Arsenal fans however and they have taken to social media to voice their discontent.

Check out some of the Arsenal fury below.
