By Vanessa Ekpereka (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The protests came ahead of Arsenal’s Friday Premier League match against Everton, with fans gathering on the stadium’s concourse more than two hours before kickoff, banging metal screens above the main box office, lighting flares, setting off fireworks, blaring airhorns and chanting ‘We want Kroenke out,’ and ‘We want our Arsenal back.’
Amid the chaotic scenes, one fan reportedly suffered a broken leg and a head injury after shocking footage showed the supporter falling from the top of the club’s ticket office during the Protests.
The hundreds of Gunners fans hung banners over the edge of the concourse including ones that read, ‘Arsenal till I die. Kroenke out,’ and ‘Our club our home. Sell up Stan.’
Fan anger has been brewing since Arsenal and five other Premier League clubs announced they would join a breakaway Super League last Sunday. And it hasn’t subsided even after Arsenal quit the 12-team Super League project on Tuesday night in the face of a growing public backlash, and apologized to fans.
