Africa’s richest man Aliko Dangote wants to buy Arsenal Football Club and his first business will be getting rid of Arsene Wenger. The Nigerian tycoon has always expressed his desire to buy the club, one of the most decorated football clubs in the football history. However, the club is currently owned by Stan Kroenke 67% and Alisher Usmanov, 30%. However, Stan has stated before that he has no plans to sell the club, something that Dangote feels can change if a good deal was tabled.
The first thing I would change is the coach. He has done a good job, but someone else should also try his luck,’ he told Bloomberg. Dangote is currently building an £8.5billion oil refinery in Lagos after which he wants to table his bid for the London-based club.
‘If they get the right offer, I’m sure they would walk away. Someone will give them an offer that will make them seriously consider walking away. ‘And when we finish the refinery, I think we will be in a position to do that,’ ha added.
Do you think it will be as easy for Aliko Dangote to get Arsenal? And what if he finally buys it, will it be wise to show Wenger the door? Tell us below.
