Arsenal boss Wenger warns potential club owner: Don't interfere

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has sent a warning to anyone planning to buyout the club.

Wenger has so far refused to be drawn on the boardroom battle between Stan Kroenke, who was given a place on the board last year, and second-biggest shareholder Alisher Usmanov.

Yet the Frenchman made it clear he would have no problem with Kroenke if the American did not interfere with the way he runs the football side of the club.

Wenger said: "The only important thing is the club is run properly in every department. The most important department in any football club is what is happening on the pitch.

"As long as whoever owns the club doesn't interfere with what we do on the pitch, then for me it's OK.

"I spoke to Stan Kroenke at the club's AGM.

"He's really interested in sport because he has two or three clubs in the States. He's interested in sport, he's interested in football but I do not ask him specifically why he invests at Arsenal. It's not my problem."
