After defending his own business model with the Gunners, the American congratulates his compatriots in their success with increasing revenue for their league rivals
The American-based owners took full control of the current Premier League champions in 2005 after a gradual process, in a move predominantly opposed by the United fans.
The family’s compatriot Kroenke however, believes they have brought a successful business model to the table and are reaping the rewards.
Kroenke told reporters: “What was so tough about the Glazers’ situation? OK guys, let’s talk about it. But they won. And they have increased revenues by a huge amount.
“If I was a fan of that club. I would still be there and go: ‘Wow’. Because how could you do it any better? That’s what I would say.
“I don’t know as a fan, how could you do it much better? They have increased massively. Some of their players have taken money out and maybe they haven’t performed.
“We have a whole different philosophy I think in the States, maybe, but I think it’s time for everybody to think a little bit and maybe I am saying too much but I think they ought to think a little bit about who invests in these clubs.
“Jerry Buss [LA Lakers owner] takes money out of his club. A lot of owners in the US do. No-one ever says anything about it. What’s it about in fairness - did the Lakers win anything? Well, yes. They did. How big’s their revenue? Pretty darn good.”
