The European Super League is on the verge of collapsing and it is safe to say at this point that football has won, the fans have won and the integrity of the sport we all love and adore will soon be restored.
There is no place for greed in football. The money-hungry owners are learning that the hard way and this is a great day for the sport.
The players had no clue what was going on when the announcements were made late on Sunday. Nobody was consulted, it was a decision made by the owners, and they thoroughly deserved the criticism they received from all corners of the footballing world.
Arsenal fans, in particular, have an awful relationship with our owner, Stan Kroenke. The American has barely done anything positive since he took over the club, and what he did on Sunday, along with his other rich pals, is just a step too far.
Supporters are absolutely disgusted by Kroenke at this point. The history, tradition and class that Arsenal are renowned for was dragged through the mud by our owner. It’s time to say ‘enough is enough’.
Nobody from Arsenal had addressed the media after the announcement – probably as they feared for their jobs. That is understandable considering that it isn’t beyond Kroenke to sack them, especially after he did the same to over 50 people in the middle of a global pandemic.
One player finally had the courage to come forward – our vice-captain, Hector Bellerin. The Spaniard tweeted out a picture of Arsene Wenger, which included his final few words as our manager.
Kroenke let Wenger down season after season, and three years after the legendary Frenchman announced that he was leaving the club, our owner managed to let him down one more time.
Arsenal fans absolutely loved Bellerin’s post on Twitter.
