Kroenke outlines his Arsenal ambition as Wenger signs on again

Stan Kroenke

Stan Kroenke has outlined his ambition for the club in a lengthy four sentence statement issued after Arsene Wenger signed his new contract.

The manager will now stay until 2019 after the majority shareholder sanctioned a new deal after winning the FA Cup against Chelsea last weekend.

Dubbed Silent Stan, because he’s reluctant to talk too much in the media, he spoke about Wenger and the future today.

“Our ambition is to win the Premier League and other major trophies in Europe,” he said.

“It’s what the fans, players, staff, manager and board expect and we won’t rest until that is achieved.

“Arsene is the best person to help us make that happen. He has a fantastic track record and has our full backing.”

If one of the complaints about Kroenke is that he hasn’t really ever outlined his ambitions for the club, then he has at least mentioned it today.

It’s not an expansive statement by any means, and one most will take with a hefty pinch of salt, but it’s something of an improvement at least.
