Nigerian Billionaire Expresses Interest In Buying Arsenal And Dethroning Wenger
Arsene Wenger will be sacked as Arsenal manager should Nigerian billionaire Aliko Dangote succeed in buying the Premier League club.
Wenger has been in charge of Arsenal’s first-team affairs since 1996, leading the Gunners to seven FA Cups, three Premier League titles, and a Champions League final.
Without a title-winning campaign since 2003-04, though, pressure has grown on the Frenchman to leave his position.
Wenger signed a two-year contract extension at the club at the end of the 2016-17 season, despite finishing fifth in the Premier League table. Should Dangote take over, he will end Wenger’s reign at the club.
“The first thing I would change is the coach,” Dangotem who has already outlined his early plans for Arsenal and its backroom structure, told Bloomberg.
“He has done a good job, but someone else should also try his luck.”
