Flamini speaks on buying Arsenal


The former Gunners midfielder Mathieu Flamini has been speculated to be making moves to take over as Arsenal owner but he has come out to deny it, insisting that he does not have the resources to do so.

Mathieu Flamini was a successful player at Arsenal but his success in place of business is mouth-watering as he has become a big businessman but he does not intend to make use of his profit to buy the North London outfit someday.

The 36-year-old Frenchman had 246 appearances for the Gunners to his name, along with three FA Cup successes and a Champions League final appearance.

He might have gone into business, but he has been monitoring closely, how the Premier League heavyweights are faring and he still has eyes on playing the game actively before any talks of retirement.

However, he is speculated to have €30 billion (£27bn/$36bn) in his account which he has denied. He told The Athletic “No! Don’t ask me how I’ll be involved in football, because it’s not something I’ve thought about. But, definitely, it’s something which I’ve been part of forever in my life. I will always want to be part of this community.”

Meanwhile, Mathieu Flamini has not retired from active football as he made it clear that he feels good and healthy.

“I still feel good and healthy! When you take care of your health, when you eat healthy, when you drink water, when you sleep well, I will say you age better. I’m feeling very good and I haven’t decided to continue or to stop, that’s the first aspect.”

Meanwhile, Nigerian billionaire businessman, Aliko Dangote has also reportedly made his desire known to buy Arsenal anytime in the future as he will not be ready for that until a level of listed achievements is met.
