Stan Kroenke has increased his stake in Arsenal after he purchased a further 23 ordinary shares, taking his percentage to 67.

The sale of shares is the first major move since February when Farhad Moshiri sold his stake to Alisher Usmanov, the other majority shareholder at the club.

Kroenke, who has just seen his American Football franchise awarded the SuperBowl, paid £368,000 for the shares.

There’s not really much more we can say about this.

They both want sole ownership of the club and they’ll likely chip away until either Kroenke or Usmanov gets bored and moves on to another venture that will make them more money.

None of them have any affection for Arsenal the team, like most owners these days in modern football.

Reconciling that fact with how fans feel about Arsenal is one of the hardest things to do, hence the protests we’ve seen over the past few seasons.
