Nigerian billionaire, Aliko Dangote, remains resolute in his ambition to take over English club, Arsenal from current owner Stan Kroenke.
And when he does, Africa’s richest person says current manager, Arsene Wenger, would be shown the door for another manager to try their luck.
Speaking to Bloomberg, 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’s previous contract was due to end in June 2017 but the Frenchman signed a new contract that keeps him at the club until June 2019.
The manager is Arsenal’s most successful manager in the club’s history, having won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cup titles in his two decades at the club.
Meanwhile, Dangote is hoping he could convince the club owners to sell their stake to him once a proper and suitable offer is tabled.
He said, ‘If they get the right offer, I’m sure they would walk away. Someone will give them an offer that will make them seriously consider walking away.
