Usmanov rules out selling his Arsenal stake

Reports on Monday suggested Usmanov were looking to sell his stake at the club.

“I’m in love with Arsenal. I have no intention of selling my stake,” Usmanov told The Guardian.

“That may be possible at some point in time when I know that Arsenal hates me. I will make sure this doesn’t happen. I have not lost one single share.

“As long as Arsene Wenger is manager that’s not going to happen.”
