Bracewell-Smith 'deeply hurt' from board sacking, reveals Brady
Former Arsenal director Lady Nina Bracewell-Smith is still ‘deeply hurt’ after her removal from the Gunners board last December, according to close friend Karren Brady.
Bracewell-Smith, who’s family have a previous wealth of share ownership at the club, owns a 15.9% stake in the club and is the third largest shareholder in the club following Danny Fiszman, with 24.11%,
Birmingham City’s managing director Karren Brady revealed in her Sun column that ‘all is not good’ at the Emirates.
“The Arsenal boardroom is a jungle from which Lady Nina Bracwell-Smith was expelled a month ago. At lunch I can tell she remains deeply hurt.
“As anyone who has followed events at the Emirates knows, there’s more intrigue among the directors than in an episode of Dallas. So it’s difficult to say why Nina was abruptly axed, except that it’s abpit money and power.”
The reason for Bracewell-Smith’s exit is reportedly because she didn’t agree with the appointment of new CEO Ivan Gazidis [pictured right].
