With Arsenal's trophy drought now well into its eighth year, Usmanov, speaking to the media in Russia, claims that Kroenke "doesn't show any wish" to establish a winning team, while also bemoaning the lack of star names at the club.
"The team has no superstars now," the Uzbek fumed.
The tycoon, recently named the richest man in Britain, owns a 30 per cent stake in Arsenal with partner Farhad Moshiri and has made little secret of his desire to grasp full control of the north London club, which has put him at odds with Kroenke on many occasions before.
Nevertheless, Usmanov is still has his mind set on next season, promising that he "will think what to do with Arsenal" by the end of the season. "In our understanding, Kroenke has no plans to sell his stake," he continued, "but we also won't sell out, as we are the team's fans."
