Usmanov criticises Arsenal board

Usmanov has a 26% shareholding in the club, but rival Stan Kroenke recently took over the majority of the club’s shares.

“If the role of a board member is to oversee a trophyless period, while making significant personal profits and asking fans to pay inflation-busting ticket price increases then, no, I would not want to be on the board,” Usmanov told the News of the World.
