Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, has again expressed interest in buying English Premier League team, Arsenal despite being rebuffed by its owners in 2010.
In a recent interview with Bloomberg, Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, said that the first thing he would do if he buys Arsenal club is to fire the club manager, Arsene Wenger. Dangote said he will consider making an offer to buy the club once the $11 billion oil refinery he is constructing in Lagos is completed.
“The first thing I would change is the coach. He has done a good job, but someone else should also try his luck.” he said
Wenger who renewed his two-year contract with Arsenal in May this year, is one of Europe’s longest-serving manager. He was first appointed in 1996 and has won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cup trophies.
