Arsenal’s majority share holder Stan Kroenke’s son Josh Kroenke has arrived in London to take on a new role as part of the overhaul behind the scenes at Arsenal.
According to a report in the Daily Mail he has now rented a house in London and is expected to bring his e-sports strategy knowledge to the club to try and improve the way things are run off of the pitch at Arsenal.
Kroenke Jnr. is coming to the North London club with a wealth of experience in sports management that he has gathered over the years and is currently the President and Governor of the family’s Denver Nuggets basketball team and the Colorado Avalanche Ice Hockey team.
The report in the Mail suggests that he is coming to check on how the club has been managed and how the new arrivals to the new back room staff have been getting on with Chairman Ivan Gazidis.
Raul Sanllehi recently joined the club as Director of Football Relations while Sven Mislintat is the new Head of Recruitment at the club, while Huss Fahmy has taken on the Contract Negotiator role and Darren Burgess comes in as Head of High Performance.
In the report they claim that the club are denying this is preparing for life after Wenger, but with all of these new hires, you do wonder whether this could be the Frenchman’s last season at the helm.
