Arsenal fans - well, some of them - aren't happy about US sports mogul Stan Kroenke buying their club.

The Arsenal Supporters' Trust said the news marked "a dreadful day".

Kroenke, who already owns 67%, is planning to buy another 30% for about 600m. It will involve taking Arsenal off a stock market share index.

A Trust statement read: "Stan Kroenke taking the club private will see the end of supporters owning shares in Arsenal and their role upholding custodianship values.

"The most dreadful part of this announcement is the news that Kroenke plans to forcibly purchase the shares held by Arsenal fans.

"Many of these fans are AST members and hold their shares not for value but as custodians who care for the future of the club. Kroenke's actions will neuter their voice and involvement.

"The AST is wholly against this takeover. Arsenal remains too important to be owned by any one person."
