Arsenal Director Josh Kroenke has revealed winning the English Premier League title is a top priority for the club in the coming years.
Kronke in an interview with BBC Sport said the club owned by his billionaire father Stan Kronke, has the same ambition as the fans who have been agitating for an EPL trophy in the last 15 years.
The Gunners have not won an EPL title since 2004 when the ‘Invincibles’ delivered the title.
Kroenke said that despite finishing 28 points behind champions Manchester City last season, Arsenal are aiming to win the Premier League in the coming years.
He added that conceding four goals in the second half of the Europa League final transformed the Gunners’ approach to recruitment this summer and praised club staff for “working their magic” in the transfer market.
“Our ambitions are the same as the fans. We want to win and we want to win as much and as often as possible. And doing it a fun way, where they’re seeing some really entertaining football as well. I think we’ve got the group to do it,” Kroenke said.
“We have the highest of ambitions. In North America, we are trying to win. The [Los Angeles] Rams were in the Super Bowl last year. I can only imagine what a Champions League final is like after being over in Baku.
“There are six great clubs in the Premier League and unfortunately only four [Champions League] spots that are guaranteed. The economics involved – to be able to reinvest back into the club, attract different players who only want Champions League football… our goal is to get back and to win the Premier League.”
