Foreign ownership starting to worry WengerWell, of course you feel like you are at an English club Arsene. Of course you do....you're also worried about foreigners in English football then?
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admits he is concerned by the increasing trend of foreign ownership in Premiership clubs.
He said: 'This trend [for foreign ownership] does worry me. Generally you want the clubs to be in control of their own destiny. If you suddenly have 20 foreign investors who buy 20 English clubs you are in danger.
'The manager is foreign, the players are foreign, you need to draw a line. England doesn't control it any more.'
He added in Arsenal's magazine, reproduced in the Daily Mirror: 'I feel the soul of football in this country is first granted by the owners of the clubs. Here, for example, at Arsenal I feel I am really at an English club.
