Josh Kroenke admits Arsenal were wrong to join Super League

Arsenal director Josh Kroenke has admitted that the Gunners were ‘obviously wrong’ to join the European Super League this year, claiming it shouldn’t define his family’s ownership of the club.

Arsenal were among 12 founder clubs for the Super League when the proposal went public in April. But the immense fury and backlash saw the Gunners and eight of the others withdraw within a couple of days – only Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus refused to give it up.

Explaining the thought process behind signing up to the breakaway competition, Kroenke appeared to suggest there was a bit of a FOMO attitude behind Arsenal wanting to join.

“We were presented with an opportunity. We asked ourselves a question, which was what was worse, a Super League or Super League without Arsenal? And we answered that question that we should be included in that,” Kroenke told Sky Sports.

“Were we wrong? Obviously,” he conceded.
