Africa’s richest man plans to take over Arsenal Football Club. Aliko Dangote said he will plan to buy Arsenal in 2021 after the completion of his other multi-billion dollar projects. Africa’s richest man and Nigerian Businessman Aliko Dangote is a Gunner fan through and through and he has plans to buy the club in the future.
The 62-year-old Dangote is the founder of the multinational conglomerate, Dangote Group which deals with products like cement, sugar, salt, flour and steel, among others. Dangote is currently building what will be the largest single-train refinery in the world in Lekki, Lagos State – the Dangote refinery, with production scheduled to start later in the year.
Currently, Stan Kroenke holds the majority of shares at Arsenal. Dangote said he will be considering to buy the club when he is ready. “It is a team that, yes, I would like to buy someday, but what I keep saying is we have $20billion worth of projects and that’s what I really want to concentrate on,” Dangote told the David Rubenstein Show.
“I’m trying to finish building the company and then after we finish, maybe sometime 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.” The Gunners are currently 10th in the Premier League table with 28 points after 22 games four points adrift of a European spot.
