I have never considered selling Arsenal or sacking Arsene Wenger- Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke

The owner of Arsenal football club Stan Kroenke has come out to say that he has never considered selling his majority share of the club and insists Arsene Wenger is still the right man to lead the Gunners.
Kroenke has faced growing calls to outline his vision for the club after awarding Wenger a controversial new two-year contract during the summer break despite Arsenal's fifth-place finish in the Premier League last season.
Arsenal Supporters' Trust (AST) recently wrote to Kroenke to express their concerns over the direction of the club, ahead of Thursday's annual general meeting at the Emirates. The Trust also urged shareholders to vote against the re-appointment of Kroenke's son, Josh, on to the club's board. However, despite the unrest, Kroenke insists he will never sell Arsenal and believes the club is capable of winning both the Premier League and Champions League under Wenger.
He said “Just go look at our history, we get into these things to try to grow them. You don't see us selling things. You just don't. We are committed long-term. I'm at a stage in life where… what good does that do? I love Arsenal, love being involved with Arsenal. There no finer feeling than going out and winning like we did with the FA Cup. That whole afternoon and evening, we talked about what happened on the pitch. Wonderful. The feeling is contagious and it makes you want to keep doing it. There's so many easier ways to make money, I can assure you. Much, much easier.”
