Swedish billionaire and founder of Spotify Daniel Ek has partnered with Arsenal legends Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira and Dennis Bergkamp to try and buy Arsenal from Stan Kroenke.
“I know a lot of people wanted to hear about it, it is true. Daniel is an Arsenal fan. He didn’t say that for any publicity, he is an Arsenal fan for a very long time. He approached us (me, Vieira & Bergkamp), we listened to him.” Henry spoke on Sky Sports.
“When we knew, first & foremost, he wanted to involve the fans then we met the Arsenal Supporters Trust. We told them what we wanted to do, to bring them back on board, make them part of the meetings & know what’s happening. You need to put the DNA back into the club.”
“He wants to inject the Arsenal DNA back into the club, which for me, is long gone. You don’t have Arsenal people there amongst the board, but that’s what Daniel wants to do. He already said he has collected the funds to put a good bid. Now, they (Kroenke) need to listen.”
Thierry Henry who scored 175 goals for Arsenal also added that Ek’s potential takeover would take a long time to complete.
He also said that Daniel Ek is determined to be persistent but the process will take time and it won’t be easy.
