Fans of Premier League giants Arsenal are desperate for Nigerian billionaire Aliko Dangote to buy the club following current owner Stan Kroenke’s involvement in the disastrous European Super League (ESL) The Sun reports.
Arsenal put out a statement on Tuesday night apologising for signing up to the Super League following a huge backlash from the greater footballing world.
And the spotlight is now on American owner Kroenke, believed to be one of the main ESL instigators.
Loyal Gooners are desperate for a new leader to take the club forward which has led to some holding out for Dangote to step forward after hinting last year that he could make an offer in 2021.
The magnate, worth £8.3billion, invested in an oil refinery and claimed it would be operational this year, allowing him to focus on new projects which could include buying Arsenal.
He said in January 2020: “It is a team that yes, I would like to buy some day.
“I’m trying to finish building the company and then after we finish, maybe some time in 2021, we can.
“I’m not buying Arsenal right now, I’m buying Arsenal when I finish all these projects because I’m trying to take the company to the next level.”
And Gunners supporters are hoping Dangote can soon replace Kroenke at the head of the table.
One said: “We need Dangote to buy Arsenal now.”
Another wrote: “Aliko Dangote, this is the perfect opportunity for you to buy Arsenal. Please, we are begging you.”
One tweeted: “Aliko Dangote please take over Arsenal now!”
Another noted: “Can’t help but think it might be a good thing for us. Might mean the Kroenkes finally leaving.
“Someone like Usmanov or Dangote might come in for the long haul to make Arsenal competitive again.”
One added: “Dangote should please buy Arsenal, we need new manager. A big club like Arsenal can’t be struggling.”
Meanwhile, eight clubs have so far pulled out of the Super League.
The clubs are Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid.
Clubs who are yet to announce their withdrawal are Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus and AC Milan.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
