Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas insists takeover talk surrounding the club does not affect the players.

Stan Kroenke recently upped his stake in the Gunners to 62%, making the American the club's majority shareholder after Lady Nina Bracewell-Smith and the late Danny Fiszman accepted his offer.

However, the Arsenal Supporters Trust appear unwilling to sell their stake to the Kroenke Sports Enterprises mogul, who owns the Denver Nuggets, Colorado Rapids and St Louis Rams.

Despite the last gasp draw against Liverpool at the Emirates yesterday, Fabregas insisted in his pre-match programme notes that the players have little interest in the off-field activities at the current time.

“The takeover of the Club by Stan Kroenke has made plenty of news but is not really something that, as players, we talk too much about," said the Arsenal skipper.


“We just want Arsenal to be as stable and competitive as possible, and anything that ensures this will make us very happy because we all know how much potential there is here.”

Manchester United are now six points clear of Arsenal at the top of the Barclays Premier League table, but the Gunners will not give up the chase and know victory against their rivals on May 1st could be crucial.
