Aliko Dangote To Buy Arsenal And Sack Arsene Wenger by tayorh(m): 12:51pm On Aug 17, 2017
Nigerian billionaire Aliko Dangote’s first order of business if he succeeds in buying English Premier League soccer club Arsenal will be to fire the manager, Arsene Wenger.

Dangote, Africa’s richest man with a net worth of $11.1 billion, has coveted the team since becoming a supporter in the mid-1980s, he said in an interview. He’ll consider making an offer once the construction of an $11 billion oil refinery in Nigeria’s commercial capital, Lagos, is completed toward the end of the decade.

“The first thing I would change is the coach,” Dangote said. “He has done a good job, but someone else should also try his luck.”


Wenger is Europe’s longest-serving manager. Since his appointment to the London-based club in 1996, he’s won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cup trophies. In May, he agreed to a new two-year deal, ending months of speculation over his future prompted by his team’s indifferent form last season. Arsenal failed to qualify for the UEFA Champions League, Europe’s premier tournament, for the first time in 20 years.

Arsenal’s biggest shareholder is American billionaire Stan Kroenke, who controls almost 67 percent of the company. Earlier this year, Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov, who already holds a 30 percent stake, sought to buy out Kroenke in an offer that valued Arsenal at as much as 2 billion pounds ($2.6 billion).

Dangote, 60, doubts he’d have trouble persuading Kroenke and Usmanov to sell.

“If they get the right offer, I’m sure they would walk away,” he said. “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.”

“It’s a great team, well-run. It could be run better, so I will be there,” he said. “I will wait. Even if things change I will take it.”

Stop deluding yourself. None of the board member presently @Arsenal will sell Arsenal fc to Dangote.

Football business is not same as manufacturing of Sugar or salt.

Let him buy smaller club first and manage it before making empty promises.

Aboki go and rest. Better use that money and uplift the millions of professional beggars in the North.

When I make the money I need, I will contest for Nigerian presidency. The First law I will pass is to introduce begging as course in all Northern Universities especially ABU Zaria. I can work together with Dangote and make begging a lucratize business in the North

Aboki Shine My Shoe.

Below is the look of the average Northern Parasite.
