Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood hits back at criticism
Wednesday 29 June 2011
Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood has hit back at criticism of the Gunners board from former director Lady Bracewell-Smith.
Bracewell-Smith, who left the north London club in December 2008, wrote on Twitter: "In time we will need a more dynamic pro-active younger board, and a good directional leadership."
Hill-Wood, responding in the Daily Star, said: "I wouldn't pay any attention to it myself.
"I don't know why she is suddenly sounding off. She should keep herself quiet and not complain."
Bracewell-Smith sold her 15.9% holding to Stan Kroenke in April, which paved the way for the American to launch a full-blown takeover.
