The current owner of the English side club, Arsenal Football Club is Enos Stanley Kroenke. His net worth according to Forbes report 2021 is 8.2 billion USD but top stories in London indicate that fans of the club want him to sell the club to someone else to manage the club better. When Arsenal was about to play Everton on Friday, several hundred fans of the club protested outside the Emirates Stadium to call for the owner Stanley Kroenke to leave the club over its bid to join the Super League.
The fans were enormously furious as they were banging metal screens above the main box office, lightning flares, setting off fireworks, and chanting "We want Kroenke out" and "We want our Arsenal back". This news even got to the doorsteps of Spotify co-founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Daniel Ek to express keen interest in buying Arsenal Football Club.
This what Daniel Ek used his official Twitter account to write "As a kid growing up, I’ve cheered for Arsenal as long as I can remember. If KSE would like to sell Arsenal I'd be happy to throw my hat in the ring".
But Joy Sports Journalist, Gary Al-Smith has asked Ghanaians to choose between these two African Millionaires the one they think can manage Arsenal Football Club very well. The popular Sports Journalist quizzes that "Arsenal Fans want Enos Stanley Kroenke out, which of these two should buy the club? Kwame Despite or Aliko Dangote?
Some Ghanaians think that the Ghanaian businessman, Dr. Osei Kwame Despite is very rich but not rich enough to buy Arsenal Football Club but the Nigerian businessman, Aliko Dangote is capable of purchasing the English side. Report according to the ghanainsider.com indicates that as of 2021, Dr. Osei Kwame Despite net worth is 1.5 Million USD.
Report according to Forbes indicates that the Nigerian businessman, Aliko Dangote net worth as of 2021 is 11.6 Million USD. Check out some comments from some Ghanaians as to which of these two businessmen can purchase Arsenal Football Club:
A Facebook user known as Ab-Latif Adams reacted that, "Despite does not have the money to buy Arsenal, and I don't think these white guys would ever allow any Blackman to have ownership of any of the topflight English clubs, much more Arsenal".
Another Facebook user known as Al Baaki Iddrisu also said that "Dangote is a possibility but Despite I can't think far".
