If you have been keenly following the activities and business decisions of the richest man in Africa- Aliko Dangote, here is more reason for you to love him. That is, if you are a sports lover and in particular a football lover and a die hard Arsenal fan.
Aliko Dangote whose attempt at purchasing Arsenal in 2010 was unsuccessful is set to buy the club in 2020. According to what he told Bloomberg Television. He said:
“There’s no doubt, it’s not a problem” “Maybe three to four years. The issue is that we have more challenging headwinds. I need to get those out the way first and start having tailwinds. Then I’ll focus on this. “It’s not about buying Arsenal and just continuing with business as usual. It’s about buying Arsenal and turning it around. “I’ve run a very successful business and I think I can also run a very successful team. Right now, with what we’re facing, over $20 billion of projects, I cannot do both.”
Kudos, Arsenal fans should be happy, perharps when the business mogul finally purchases Arsenal, the Barclay’s premier league might be won by Arsenal. Surely, three to four years is not so long a wait for the die hard fans.
