Former striker of the gunners, Kevin Campbell has joined growing call by fans for the replacement of the current owner, Kroenke and also declared 100 percent support for the tenth-time topmost African billionaire, Aliko Dangote to buy the club he earlier promised.
Speaking to Football insider, Campbell said, “first and foremost he is a massive fan of Arsenal. He is also one of the wealthiest guys around. He has got the money. That is the key. He has more than got the money.”
He added that, “as a fan of the club he would want to put us back on the right footing. 100 per cent, I would love it to happen. I would absolutely love it”
Taking a swipe at the current owner, Campbell said, “at the end of the day, all fans can hope for is an owner who cares. You want the owner to put the best possible product out on the pitch.”
The richest black man earlier expressed interest in buying the premier league side. Dangote said in an interview that, “It(Arsenal) is a team that, yes, I would like to buy someday.”
He added that, “we have $20bn worth of projects and that’s what I really want to concentrate on; I’m trying to finish building the company and then, after we finish, maybe sometime in 2021 we can.”
The refinery which is being built by the billionaire in Nigeria is steadily taking shape and if things go as planned, the African billionaire could acquire the club this year.
