Arsenal fans wants Stan Kroenke out of the club.

Furious Arsenal fans gathered in large numbers to protest against the Arsenal club owner Stan Kroenke on Friday evening. This protest came ahead of the Arsenal match against Everton.

Stan Kroenke has come under fire over the past week following his role in signing the Gunners to the European Super League on Sunday without any consultation of the players, coaching staff, or supporters.

However, the American owners performed a U-turn on the decision just 48 hours later. Josh Kroenke’s appearance at a fans forum on Thursday wasn’t enough to stop the Gooners who gathered outside the Emirates Stadium from demanding change.

The protest which began at around 5 pm and continued well into Arsenal’s Premier League clash with the Toffees was accompanied by fireworks which were audible from inside the stadium around half an hour into the match.

Police dispersed the peaceful protesters with minimal fuss not long after, but the Arsenal team were unable to match their fans’ passion outside as their tepid display saw them go 1-0 going down to a Bernd Leno own goal on the night.

Mikel Arteta was insistent after the game that the protests had not impacted his team in their poor performance and instead blamed the VAR.

He said:

“We knew that was happening and we knew our fans wanted to express our feelings,” he said of the demonstration.

“We made our preparations with that in mind and that’s not an excuse.

“We lost the game because at the end when we had to define the game in the crucial moments when we had the chances no clear chances that we wanted.

“We didn’t do that, then we conceded the own goal, and obviously when we earned the right to score with the decisions it was taken away.”

Here are the most striking images from the fans protest event.
