Uzbekistan tycoon and Arsenal shareholder Alisher Usmanov has attacked the way the club is currently being run as he continues to criticise Stan Kroenke.

The American is currently the majority shareholder in the north London club but has been criticised by some supporters who feel he has failed to provide significant funds for manager Arsene Wenger.

Usmanov has echoed these sentiments by suggesting that Kroenke "would probably be happy" if the team finished in fourth and claimed that he "doesn't show any wish" to create an Arsenal side that can challenge for major honours.

He also told the Mirror that "the team has no superstars now" after Arsenal failed to make any big name signings after the departures of Robin van Persie and Alex Song last summer.

The 59-year-old has often suggested that he would like to buy a majority stake in the club but admits that it will be difficult to persuade Kroenke to part with any of his shares.

"In our understanding, Kroenke has no plans to sell his stake, but we also won't sell out, as we are the team's fans," explained Usmanov.

Kroenke is unlikely to be pleased with the comments of Usmanov and will surely continue to make it difficult for the business-magnate to increase his 30% share in the club.

With Arsenal enduring another difficult season with no silverware, the Mirror suggests that Wenger will be handed a transfer budget of £70million in the summer so that he can build a squad capable of challenging for major honours.

The Gunners still have a chance of finishing in the top four this season but with just one year left on Wenger's contract at the club this could be the last chance the Frenchman has at delivering success.

There have already been rumours linking Wenger with Paris Saint-German but the long-serving Arsenal boss has made it clear that he will see out the remainder of his current deal which ends in the summer of 2014.
