Arsenal majority shareholder, Stan Kroenke has been criticized by former club director, Lady Bracewell-Smith saying Kroenke lacked passion for the game and the club.

Bracewell-Smith who sold her shares to Kroenke last year but remains an honorary vice-president in a tweet criticised the American amid the doom and gloom surrounding the club.


The Gunners' struggles reached a new low earlier in the week when League Two side Bradford City knocked them out of the Capital One Cup on penalties, denying them another chance to end a wait for a trophy that is now more than seven years.

“Football is a business of passion and Kroenke has no passion for AFC.

“If making money was the motivating factor, surely there are better ways to go about it.

“He shows he cares very little. Why he wanted to be part of Arsenal FC I do not know,” Bracewell added.

She also admitted that had she known she would not have sold her shares to Kroenke who also counts the NFL's St Louis Rams and Major League Soccer franchise Colorado Rapids among his other sporting ventures.
