ARSENAL fans have spoken to owner Stan Kroenke’s son Josh at a supporters group meeting.
The Gunners enjoyed a 2-0 victory over Manchester United on Sunday to gain a huge advantage in the battle for the top four.
But Arsenal fans also received a bonus off the field after Josh Kroenke met with fans to discuss the goals of the north London club going forward.
The 38-year-old unexpectedly showed up at this weekend’s fans forum meeting, which was a pre-planned event for supporters.
Kroenke was joined by Arsenal’s head of football Raul Sanllehi and managing director Vinai Venkatesham on Saturday ahead of the United clash at the Emirates Stadium.
The American flew in especially for the game and is now expected to stay until after the Gunners’ Europa League clash with Rennes on Thursday evening.
Kroenke was pressed on a number of issues by fans, including their desire to win silverware.
And the Daily Mirror claim he responded by strongly answering that trophies were the main aim for the club.
He also told fans they believe Unai Emery is the right man to deliver them silverware in the coming seasons.
But Kroenke insisted the values of Arsenal must be adhered to.
Aaron Ramsey’s free transfer to Juventus was also discussed, with club chiefs explaining that finances needed to be managed carefully.
“We’ve been calling for him and his family to engage and he was fairly honest and open which is encouraging,” said Akhil Vyas, a member of the Arsenal Supporters’ Trust.
Arsenal chief Venkatsham is said to have spoken at length about how the club’s hierarchy will be changing in the near future.
Departing Roma technical director Monchi is rumoured to be the man the Gunners want brought in this summer.
Venkatsham didn’t mention the Spaniard by name but did reveal that whoever lands the role at the Emirates will be working close with the first-team.
Gunners legend Marc Overmars has also been linked with the role.
