Jay Z Wants to Invest in Soccer Team Arsenal
Whether you’re a rap music fan or simply a television owner then you probably know who Jay-Z is. He’s basically one of the biggest names in the music industry and is also known for his high-profile relationship with R&B diva Beyonce. Well, it seems that Jay-Z is branching out from his music career and is ready to take on a role in sports investment.
He recently announced that he is interested in investing in Arsenal. In his latest interview with “99 Problems”, a fanzine of the club, he related how he has always been a big fan of the soccer team. And that his admiration for the team dated back to the days of French sports star Thierry Henry. He told the magazine how his admiration for the club deepened when he say Henry play about five years ago.
Jay-Z is no stranger to sports franchises. He is in fact the co-owner of popular basketball team, the New Jersey Nets. And Jay-Z is not shy to admit that he’s also a businessman aside from being a music ingénue. He also admits that he does not know much about the soccer business but that he is waiting for a good opportunity.
And it seems Jay-Z is not the only rapper who is interested in investing in soccer clubs. Recently, Sean Combs or P. Diddy also expressed his interest in Crystal Palace. The team’s administrator Brendan Guilfoyle expressed his hopes that Combs might decide to buy the team especially since it is incidentally going bankrupt.
