Arsene Wenger defended Stan Kroenke after Arsenal fans turned on the majority shareholder.
The Gunners ended their Premier League campaign with a 3-1 victory over Everton at the Emirates.
It wasn’t enough to secure a return to the Champions League with attention now turning to the FA Cup final against Chelsea.
Earlier this week Kroenke rejected a £1bn bid from Alisher Usmanov to buy Arsenal.
And the Gunners fans urged the American to walk away with chants of ‘Stan Kroenke, get out of our club”, and held banners in the stands.
One read: “Stan you’re not wanted. Get out of our club you leech.”
But Wenger defended him, insisting he is not responsible for what happens on the pitch.
“I respect Stan Kroenke a lot. He is not at fault if we did not reach the Champions League,” Wenger said.
“It is the technical department who is responsible for that. I don’t see what he has to do with that.”
Arsenal fans have turned on Kroenke, believing he doesn’t have the club’s best interests at heart.
He has done little to turn Arsenal’s fortunes around in recent years, with many supporters suggesting his sole interest is making money.
Despite the opposition, Kroenke remains committed to the Gunners and will not sell at any price.
