Former board member Nina Bracewell-Smith has publicly said he regrets selling her shares to Stan Kroenke.
In the wake of Arsenal’s 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa on Saturday, she used her Twitter account to say, “What a shame the board recommended a Kroenke takeover and paid Rothchilds 3m fee.”
“And how deeply I regret selling to Kroenke. Bring David Dein and give Usmanov representation on the board if we are to have success going forward.”
The Tweets have since been deleted. Bracewell-Smith, who sold a 15.9% share in the club to the American for around £120m, was given a position of Honorary Vice President at the club, and has a seat in the Director’s Box.
It remains to be seen how things will play out after being so openly critical of the majority shareholder.13,987 views
