Stan Kroenke spoke at Arsenal's AGM yesterday.
Among the early formalities was the re-election of majority shareholder Kroenke as a director, which ended by annual rotation, and around half a dozen hands were raised in opposition.
“Well, it was close to unanimous,” said Kroenke, mindful a similar number object every year, before embarking on a short speech.
“Anyway, it is great to be here and I would tell you we are pleased with the progress of the club and that is made up of a lot of things, most importantly on the pitch. None of us up here [on the board], fans, players, or Arsene [Wenger] are happy until we have won championships and trophies, we have said that over and over again and are committed to that.
“The real reason for that is the tradition, the image and the success of the club and that to me has been established by none other than our manager. So we are very pleased to be here and I couldn’t be more honoured to introduce our manager Arsene Wenger.”
