- Orji Uzor Kalu claims he has a well planned partnership deal that would announced Enyimba Football Club worldwide.
- According to sources, the former Abia State Governor intends to own 35% of the club shares.
- Aliko Dangote had initially attempted to buy off the club as a whole but failed to reach an agreement.
Arsenal have over the years fallen financially behind top flight competitors but could be witnessing a boost should Orji Uzor Kalu materialize his Enyimba fuse deal.
Orji Uzor has for long been a huge supporter and promoter of football since his administration made Enyimba FC a principality in the Nigerian Football League.
Kanu Nwankwo moving to Emirates Stadium back in 1999 did help alot in drawing several Nigerians to the club, including the Billionaire politician cum businessman.
It’s believed that Orji Uzor‘s main purpose for moving in on such a huge deal is to fuse in Enyimba FC and the Nigerian Professional Football League as a whole to the international eyes.
“Our success with Enyimba FC between 2000-07 has continuously increased my passion for football.
“As the pillar of sports in Africa, I am considering an investment in football and I will buy 35 per cent stake in Arsenal FC.
“Our target is to lift the Champions League and EPL, and valuable investment as well.
“Doing what you love and loving it is where greatness lies. I need 35 per cent of Arsenal to bring back trophies.”
“With Arsenal we will make Enyimba great again with the strategic partnership we are packaging.
“We shall turn it around to create a platform for more of our professional players seeking international exposure.
“A win-win outing for all parties.”
Fellow Nigerian Billionaire, Aliko Dangote had earlier on declared his intention to own every part of the club but didn’t succeed in materializing a deal.
Fans of the North London outfit haven’t failed in expressing their disappointment towards the clubs relatively prudent deals over the years, despite American Billionaire, Stan Kroenke‘s £550 million full takeover of the club back in 2018. Better days could await the gunners upon the successful turnout of Orji Uzor Kalu‘s offer.
