Africa’s richest , Aliko Dangote, says one of the first moves after buying Arsenal would be to remove Arsene Wenger.
Dangote will make a bold move to buy the English Premier League side as soon as the construction of his $11bn oil refinery in Lagos is completed, the multi billionaire has told Bloomberg
Stan Kroenke currently owns 67 per cent of Arsenal and has insisted he has no intention of selling, but Dangote is adamant, and believes that as soon as the right offer is made, the American business entrepreneur who owns Kroenke Sports and Entertainment, Denver Nuggets of the NBA, Colorado Avalanche of the NHL and Colorado Rapids of MLS will sell.
Dangote, a staunch follower of The Gunners also hints that he will fire Arsene Wenger after taking over the club.
“If they get the right offer, I’m sure they would walk away,” Dangote whose fortune is around £10bn told Bloomberg.
“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.”
“The first thing I would change is the coach.
“He has done a good job, but someone else should also try his luck.”
