Arsenal Now for Sale After Missing Champions League? Here’s What the US Owner, Kroenke is Saying

Published

on

As media reports continue to trail Arsenal especially after it missed qualifying for the UEFA Champions League for next season, the club’s majority owner, Stan Kroenke, has opened up on the sale of the football club.

Stan Kroenke, the majority shareholder of Arsenal football club, has affirmed his commitment to the club and said his shares are not for sale after minority shareholder Alisher Usmanov made a $1.3bn bid to buy out the American tycoon.
In a statement, KSE UK, the holding company for Mr Kroenke’s shares in Arsenal, said:
 
“KSE UK notes the recent media speculation concerning its shareholding in Arsenal Holdings PLC and confirms that its shares are not, and never have been, for sale. KSE is a committed, long term investor in Arsenal and will remain so.”
Uzbek-Russian metals magnate, Mr Usmanov – who currently owns 30 per cent of Arsenal – has been engaged in a long-running feud with Mr Kroenke, criticising his lack of investment in the club.
This weekend, Arsenal missed out on qualifying the Champions league for the first time in 20 years, a failure that is likely to cost it about £50m in lost revenues.
The club’s disappointing performance has led to accusations from some quarters that Mr Kroenke has been an absentee owner.

#LekkiMassacre: CNN Dares Nigeria Government, Updates Second Report (Video)

Published

The Cable News Network, CNN seems not done with the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government with the television channel releasing another report on the shooting at the Lekki toll gate during the End SARS protests.

Recall that the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, called out CNN over its report on the incident.

He added that CNN was biased in its report and needs to be sanctioned.

The Minister also addressed a letter to the management of CNN in Atlanta.

The network, however, on Tuesday released the second report with more damning footage showing soldiers shooting at unarmed protesters on October 20, 2020.

The second report also shows the Commander, 81 Division, Brig.Gen Ahmed Taiwo, admitting before the judicial panel in Lagos that military men had live ammunition in their weapons while at the tollgate.

CNN also noted that the statement of Brig.Gen Taiwo contradicts that of the Minister who had claimed last week that the army fired blank bullets.

It was also revealed in the new report, the moment when protesters were running as soldiers open fire at the tollgate.
