Fan rushed to hospital after falling from box office roof at Kroenke protests

A fan was taken to hospital after falling from a height during a protest outside the Emirates aimed at Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke.

Gunners supporters were out in their droves to voice their frustrations over the Kroenkes ahead of Friday’s Premier League clash with Everton.

The Athletic report that a fan fell from the Arsenal box office roof, with police and ambulance services confirming that the man received treatment at the scene before being taken to a major trauma centre.

The fan’s injury, though, is not thought to be life-threatening.

Arsenal’s clash against Everton is their first game since their plans to join a European Super League were announced last Sunday.

The Gunners were one of 12 European clubs to have signed up for the controversial Champions League rival but along with the Premier League ‘big six’, withdrew their support 48 hours after its initial announcement.

And thousands of fans of the north London club turned up to the Emirates, chanting and letting off flares to get their point across that they want majority shareholder Kroenke to sell up.
