Aliko Dangote, the richest man in Africa says that one of the first things he will do if he succeeds in buying English Premier League football club, Arsenal will be to fire the manager, Arsene Wenger.
Dangote, who is a staunch and dedicated Arsenal supporter, has never hidden his desire to buy the club adding that he will consider making a bid for the club once the construction of an $11 billion oil refinery in Lagos, is completed.
Dangote said: “The first thing I would change is the coach. He has done a good job, but someone else should also try his luck.”
Wenger is Europe’s longest-serving manager. Since his appointment to the London-based club in 1996, he’s won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cup trophies. In May, he agreed to a new two-year deal, ending months of speculation over his future prompted by his team’s indifferent form last season.
All in support of Dangote’s plan, say Aye!
