In an interview with David Ornstein for the BBC, Josh Kroenke has reiterated the ambition of the owners is for Arsenal to win the Premier League again.
After a busy summer during which the Gunners rebuilt the squad with the signings of Nicolas Pepe, David Luiz, William Saliba, Gabriel Martinelli, Kieran Tierney and the loan capture of Dani Ceballos from Real Madrid, the optimism among fans is much higher than it was following a difficult end to last season.
Insisting that the club’s transfer business was not a reaction to fan pressure, Kroenke made it clear that the ownership share the same desire as supporters, which is to see Arsenal win the title again.
“Our ambitions are the same as the fans,” he said. “We want to win and we want to win as much and as often as possible. And doing it a fun way, where they’re seeing some really entertaining football as well. I think we’ve got the group to do it.
“We have the highest of ambitions. In North America, we are trying to win. The Rams were in the Super Bowl last year. I can only imagine what a Champions League final is like after being over in Baku.
“There are six great clubs in the Premier League and unfortunately only four spots that are guaranteed.
“The economics involved – to be able to reinvest back into the club, attract different players who only want Champions League football … our goal is to get back and to win the Premier League.”
