Just like their Manchester United counterparts on Thursday, Arsenal fans are still furious about the attempted European Super League – and they are up against team owner Stan Kroenke.

Arsenal fans launched a massive protest outside the Emirates Stadium in London on Friday ahead of their 1-0 loss to Everton with a fairly clear goal. They want Kroenke to be gone.

Warning: The videos contain the NSFW language.

Kroenke first got involved with Arsenal in 2007 and bought the club in full in 2018. He also owns the Los Angeles Rams, the Denver Nuggets, the Colorado Avalanche, and the Colorado Rapids.

Arsenal, like the other five Premier League teams, have pulled out of the proposed Super League after heavy criticism from players, fans and the sport’s governing bodies. Much of the heat also falls on the American owners of the clubs – such as Kroenke, John Henry from Liverpool and Joel Glazer from Manchester United.

The protest by Arsenal fans on Friday was similar to that of Manchester United fans on Thursday. A group of fans blocked access to the team’s facility when players and staff arrived, and about 20 fans actually broke into the facility and protested on the field.

Obviously, even though the Super League is essentially dead, the fans are still extremely angry.
