With Arsenal shares skyrocketing, rumours had been flowing that a takeover was in the works.
American billionaire Stan Kroenke has been widely linked with possible investment in Arsenal as his company already has a relationship with the Premiership club through MLS side Colorado Rapids for some reason.
But the Rapids’ senior director of communications and international business Jurgen Mainka has denied that KSE are looking to invest in The Gunners,
“At this point, there is no interest or intention from KSE in buying any shares or any pieces of Arsenal Football Club or any club in the English Premier League,” said Mainka.
“There certainly is no substance to these stories and rumours in the media which indeed started when we first announced our commercial relationship with Arsenal Football Club.”
So, another day another Premiership club falsely linked with a takeover…or was it? Oh the suspense!
