Therry Henry, 44, says Spotify founder Ek is still trying to buy Arsenal, but his offer hasn’t received a response from owner Stan Kroenke.
What did Therry Henry say?
Daniel Ek, who took Arsenal’s 3-1 win over Tottenham on Sunday, announced his interest in acquiring the club from the Kroenke family in April amid the fallout from the European Super League fiasco. The Swedish entrepreneur enjoys the support of Gunners hero Therry Henry in his quest to take over, but the former striker admits little progress so far.
When asked about the status of Daniel’s bid for Arsenal, Therry Henry said that in order to be able to get there, someone needs to answer from the other side. It hasn’t happened yet, but they are here to stay with him. Let’s see what happens. But for now, they were enjoying the win against Tottenham yesterday.
There is no dialogue right now and Therry Henry feels it will be a long process. Henry said that the last time he was on the show in May. How long it will take Henry doesn’t really know. But they are here to stay.
A little about the topic
In May, Daniel Ek stated that he had submitted an offer to Arsenal director Josh Kroenke, but that the application was rejected. Daniel wrote that they replied that they did not need the money. Daniel respects their decision, but remains motivated and approachable if this situation ever changes. While Daniel did not elaborate on how much he was offering, reports at the time claimed it was worth around £ 1.8 billion.
Arsenal’s announcement, which they signed as members of the European Super League, sparked protests from the club’s fans. Supporters urged the Kroenke family to relinquish ownership of the club, and Daniel became a serious buyer. But Josh and Stan Kroenke issued a joint statement in April insisting they would not relinquish control.
They wrote that they remain 100 percent committed to Arsenal and do not sell a single stake in the club. They have not received any offer and will not entertain with any offer. Their passion for Arsenal remains to compete to win the biggest trophies in the game, and their focus remains on improving their serving competitiveness to achieve this.
