Arsenal’s majority shareholder Stan Kroenke has backed Wenger and says the club has no plans to sack him. Kroenke has a reputation for staying out of the day to day business of the clubs he owns. But because of the poor start to the season he has felt the need to come out and support the French manager.
Speaking to the Daily Telegraph he said: “I love his focus. He is a very intelligent guy. You can talk to him about anything and, when he starts talking to people, I really love to listen to him. He should hold seminars he is so good at it. I have tremendous confidence in him. He is one of the great managers in the world.”
