Arsenal fans take to Twitter to rubbish reports of Kroenke cash boost

Arsenal fans have become very used to getting their hopes up just to be let down, and it seems that the same thing may be happening again here. The Gunners aren’t all as gullible as to just believe whatever they read, but they’d love to believe these reports are true, as The Star claims that Stan Kroenke could be set to inject some cash into Arsenal.

It’s well-documented that whilst Arsenal are struggling financially, Kroenke’s other sporting investments in America are thriving. However, the American has finally paid off the debts he owed for financing The Pepsi Centre, the stadium in which his Denver Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche sides play their basketball and ice hockey matches. That means he’s now set to profit from every game that’s played at the 18,000 seater stadium.

According to Forbes, that means that Kroenke will pocket a figure of roughly £2 million every time one of his sides plays at The Pepsi Centre, and with that extra money going into the businessman’s pocket, Arsenal fans might be given some hope that they can finally start benefitting from having him as their owner. When Kroenke bought the Gunners, the aim was to make them self-sustainable, and whilst they’re working towards that, the extra few million quid would go a long way.

Arsenal fans are refusing to get their hopes up over this one and simply have no faith that they’ll be getting any sort of financial aid from their negligent owner.
