Nigerian comedian, Ali Baba has advised billionaire businessman, Aliko Dangote against buying Football club, Arsenal after he indicated interest.
He said this while speaking on Punch Online interview programme, Stars Talk Football, where he discussed his love for Arsenal and why he dumped sport for entertainment.
Ali Baba commended moves by Dangote to buy the club from Kroenke Sports & Entertainment.
Dangote and Senator Orji Kalu had indicated an interest in buying stakes in the London club.
The celebrity, however, cautioned that the billionaire businessman may not make his money with the present shape of the club.
When asked about moves by Dangote and Senator Orji Kalu’s move to buy Arsenal, the comedian 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.”
He, however, said the richest African man could buy Arsenal when the club have “men” and are in better shape.
