Danny Mills is not convinced Stan Kroenke will sell Arsenal despite mass fan protests and a potential buyer emerging.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Premier League and England defender insisted the club remain a “money-making machine” and the 73-year-old has little regard for the fans and that will not change.
Arsenal fans staged a mass protest against Kroenke’s ownership ahead of their 1-0 defeat to Everton on Friday night.
Minutes before kick-off billionaire Spotify founder Daniel Ek tweeted he would be interested in buying the club if Kroenke was willing to sell.
“There’s so much money involved in it,” Mills told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.
“They still have their own ideas about the club and they are selfish ideas, let be honest.
“Are they going to relinquish that money? I’m not convinced that will happen. I still think it’s very, very difficult.
“For those owners, I don’t see them giving up overnight and saying ‘You know what, we’re going to sell up.’
“These are still money-making machines.
“We’ve seen it, they don’t care. They don’t care what the fans think. They have no idea. They are removed from the whole situation.
“It’s no real bother to them. They’ve taken a bit of grief but they’re not walking around north London. They’re not up and down the high street.
“They just turn Twitter off. It’s not like they’re going to get absolutely slaughtered and even if they are, they still don’t care.
“They never cared what the fans thought in the first place so why are they going to change now?”
