Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, has again revealed his intention to have a club but this time, not necessarily Arsenal Football Club.
According to numerous reports, he is considering buying a football club other than London-based Arsenal if shareholder Stan Kroenke refuses to sell.
In an interview with Bloomberg TV at the New Economy Forum in Singapore, the businessman said :“By the time we’ve finished the world’s biggest oil refinery in Lagos, we’ll be a $30bn company in terms of revenue. We’ll have an excess amount of cash to start playing around with to buy Arsenal”
“I’m very attached to Arsenal but if he won’t sell, I might have to change. I’m very much a fan of football. I’ll like to have a club but I don’t have to own Arsenal,” Dangote added.
