On Monday afternoon, Arsenal director Danny Fiszman released the following statement.
"Over the past few months there has been much ill-informed speculation about my shareholding in Arsenal. I publicly stated my position back in April and to eradicate any uncertainty supporters may have, I would like reiterate exactly where my position is again.
"I have been a member of the Board for 15 years now. The Club has experienced many successes both on and off the pitch in that time and being part of the Arsenal family is something that is not only in my mind but also in my heart. I, together with the rest of the Board take great pride in the fact that Emirates Stadium is our home and great pleasure in the exciting, entertaining football that the team plays.
"The Board is a strong unit; we are the custodians of this Club. In April we entered into an agreement not to dispose of our interests for at least one year with the intention retaining our interests thereafter. In short, I have no intention of selling my shares in Arsenal for the foreseeable future. There are exciting times ahead with the team showing so much promise, we are energised by what the future holds. I hope now that my position is absolutely clear."
