Ian Wright passionately offered his backing to Arsenal fans amid their protest against the club’s ownership and reiterated his belief the Stan Kroenke is not ‘fit to run the club’.

Club legend Wright has regularly tweeted out ‘Kroenke Out’ in the backlash of the failed European Super League plot and he wants the ‘silent owner’ to leave the Emirates.

Fans were furious that Arsenal were one of the 12 European clubs involved in the ESL and thousands of them arrived outside the Emirates ahead of the club’s Premier League clash with Everton.

There were strong calls for Kroenke to depart and Wright, the former striker,

‘I stand with them,’ Wright told Dazn. ‘I made it clear what I think about the owner. I think they’re right to be outside there.

‘The statement from the manager as well, fans have every right to be out there saying what they’re saying.

‘KSE are not fit, for me, not fit to run the club, not fit to own the club. We’ve heard Josh Kroenke saying they’re not selling the club – and I wouldn’t expect them to, it’s a massive cash cow for them.

‘But if they are going to stay and run the club then it’s going to have to be done under different terms.

‘The only thing I can seek solace from is that the government are going to be doing a review on club ownership. Everything to do with what owners like that do and what they don’t do.

‘We’re talking about a silent owner, since he’s been at our club he’s not invested properly in the way they in the way they buy at the club, the way the service the debt with the club.

‘The fact they wanted to go into this competition… it’s like they’ve given up on us.

‘If you’re the owner of a club, it’s going to cost you money. If it’s going well, it’s going to cost you money. If it’s not going well, it’s going to cost you money.

‘What Stan Kroenke has done since he’s been at our club is be middle road. Anything that’s going to cost him, he’s nowhere to be seen.

‘That’s what we can’t have anymore. I don’t think he’s fit for purpose at the club anymore.

‘The sooner we can get him out – which is going to be tough, that’s why if we can’t get someone like him out we’re going to have to go towards the government and keep them pushing to get legislation to get these people to do the job properly.
