Alisher Usmanov Declares War And Wants Arsenal

And he has “declared war on ‘slurs’ on his character’”.

As the Mirror puts it (“Red Al upping his raw stake”), Usmanov is upset at what he sees as an internet “smear campaign over his rise to prominence”.

A source close to Usmanov tells us: “Alisher is very angry at the rubbish and slurs that are being written and wants to explain the truth to Arsenal fans and the people in England.”

We humbly advise Usmanov to think twice before addressing the Gunners’ faithful over a blog. His words may not go down well with one and all.

And then good intentions can turn into a PR disaster.

See what can go wrong here and here.
