Josh Kroenke has already made crucial decision to change Arsenal’s future in surprise move

Kroenke is based between the US and London, where is currently residing at expected to attend Arsenal’s Premier League game against Watford on Sunday.

The American billionaire is classed as a director of the club, but now makes key decisions in consultation with non-executive director Tim Lewis, who himself is a trusted confidant of the Kroenkes’ having advised the Americans when they purchased their shares in the club over a decade ago.

Kroenke rarely gives interviews to the media but following an impressive run of form, the Arsenal chief has now discussed a number of high profile incidents that have occurred over the past few months.

In an exclusive interview with Sky Sports which will air this weekend, Kroenke discussed the ill-fated decision to join the short-lived European Super League.

Arsenal were one of six Premier League clubs who signed up for the European competition which only allowed a select number of teams to enter and with no relegation possible.

Fan pressure and protests followed, before a decision was made by the club to withdraw from the competition in one of the biggest u-turns ever seen in football.

“I wouldn’t disagree with you,” Kroenke said when asked if it was the lowest point in relations between the club and fans.

“I’ll say it that way. But as someone that always tries to find the positives in things, when you’re at the bottom, there’s only one way to go and that’s back up.

“I said this to our fan advisory board who we met with last night, I don’t want a 48-hour period to define us.

“We were presented with an opportunity. We asked ourselves a question, which was what was worse, a Super League or Super League without Arsenal? And we answered that question that we should be included in that. Were we wrong?

“Obviously. We listened to our fans. We made a quick pivot, removed ourselves from the situation. We apologised, and now we move forward.

“And some of the dialogue that I’ve had with some of the support groups has been as clear as crystal and I couldn’t be more excited to be communicating with them on the level that I am because I understand who they are and now they’re understanding who I am.

“And I think the more we understand each other it’s exciting because the only thing that we want is for Arsenal Football Club to be great.”
