Arsenal’s honorary vice-president Nina Bracewell-Smith has revealed that she regrets selling her stake in the club to Stan Kroenke.
Lady Bracewell-Smith sold her 15.9% state to the American businessman in April 2011 – but she’s now wishing she hadn’t.
In Twitter comments that were later deleted, she wrote: “Bring Davie Dein [back] and give [Alisher] Usmanov representation on the board if we are to have success going forward.”
Adding: “And how deeply I regret selling to Kroenke.”
Bracewell-Smith’s shares allowed Kroenke to become the Gunners’ majority shareholder.
Earlier this summer she had criticised the club’s transfer targets and has generally been a fierce critic of the current board.
