Nigerian billionaire Aliko Dangote has declared that the first thing he will do if his plans to takeover Arsenal is successful is to sack Arsene Wenger. The richest man in Africa made this known in an interview with Bloomberg Dangote and he affirmed his desire to invest in the English club once he completes a major oil refinery project in the Nigerian capital of Lagos.
“The first thing I would change is the coach, He has done a good job, but someone else should also try his luck.” The 60 year-old said.
Dangote intends to make an offer valued Arsenal at £2bn. “If they get the right offer, I’m sure they would walk away, 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.” He added
