Spotify founder joins Arsenal legends in takeover bid

Three legends have reportedly joined forces with billionaire Spotify founder Daniel Ek as he lines up a potential takeover bid to buy the Arsenal Premier League club.

According to Sky Sports, three members of the team will back the Spotify founder’s bid for a stake in Arsenal. The three members of the premier league club’s iconic 03-04 ‘Invincibles’ team are Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, and Patrick Vieira.

The Swedish billionaire grew up supporting the Gunners. Last week, he tweeted his interest in buying the club:

Ek also recently lashed out at club owners following the Super League drama, saying, “they have been running the club like a company, not a football club, and they showed their hand.

He added:

“Maybe it’s a lack of understanding of the core football values and maybe the money was too big of a temptation. But whatever it was, they got it wrong. Badly wrong”

On the other hand, the current owner, American Stan Kroenke, is an unpopular figure among the Arsenal faithful. His popularity dropped further following the recently failed involvement in the Super League breakaway.

Ek is worth an estimated £3.4 billion Euros – a value of the takeover bid has not yet been revealed.

If the Spotify founder is successful in his plan to buy Arsenal, Henry, Vieira and Bergkamp would return to the organisation as part of the new set-up. No doubt that possibility will leave Gunner’s fans salivating.

Djokovic creates history at Roland Garros

Novak Djokovic and Stefanos Tsitsipas at Roland Garros.

Novak Djokovic has won the 2021 French Open, defeating fifth-seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in a five-set thriller.

In his first grand slam final, Tsitsipas won the first two sets. But he needed medical treatment for a back injury at the end of the third.

This gave Djokovic the chance to strike and claim victory in the final three sets: 6-7(6), 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4.

Djokovic looked exhausted during the first two sets after a gruelling match against the king of clay, 13-time winner Rafael Nadal a few days earlier.

“It was not easy for me, both physically and mentally,” Djokovic said.

But Novak Djokovic bounced back to claim victory, in his second grand slam title of the year. He said he was grateful to a young boy who offered support and advice throughout the final.

“I found that very cute and very nice,” he said.

“To give the racquet to the best person was him. That was my gratitude for him sticking with me,” he said.

Novak Djokovic becomes the first man to win all four majors twice since Rod Laver in 1969.

“Of course, I am thrilled and I’m very proud of this achievement. I think part of the history of the sport that I love with all my heart is always something that is very inspiring and very fulfilling for me,” he said.

The win marks the end of Roland Garros, which saw big names Naomi Osaka and Roger Federer withdrawing from the tournament.
