Former Governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu has thrown his hat into the ring to acquire 35 per cent stake at Arsenal.
But, a former member of those glorious 2003, 2004 eras at Enyimba, Vincent Enyeama, has criticized Kalu’s declaration.
The former Super Eagles goalkeeper on Thursday reacted to news of his former Boss’ interest in the ownership of Arsenal, suggesting it is misplaced.
“Why not invest that money in Enyimba and turn it into a mega club. A club that will bring in a lot of sponsors and create job opportunities for the youth. Nigeria has no MEGA club side that we can boast of.”
However, Kalu does not look like he intends backing down if his interview on Mirror is anything to go by.
“Our success with Enyimba FC between 2000-07 has continuously increased my passion for football,” said Kalu.
“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.”
