Comedian Alibaba has advised Alinco Dangote to halt the take over of Arsenal FC for now after he indicated interest.
The comedian speaking on Punch Online interview program, Stars Talk Football, where he discussed his love for Arsenal and why he dumped sport for entertainment, advised billionaire Alinco Dangote and politician Senator Orji Kalu of taking over Arsenal after the two billionaires indicated their interest in buying stakes in the London club.
According to him, the two men won’t get their money back anytime soon when they purchase the football club.
Speaking in the interview, comedian Alibaba said;
“Yes, Dangote can afford to buy Arsenal or any other club after his refinery project. I think it is a commercial move, not to develop our (local) sport.
I like the idea of Aliko buying the gunners. But if he buys these kindergarten players, he won’t make his money. I hope that he buys Arsenal, but the influence of an owner is limited. The coach makes the major decisions that help the club to grow.“
