He owns shares in a company worth 11 billion euros. The former Arsenal player is planning to take over the club


Frenchman Matteo Flamini, former Arsenal player, hinted at the possibility of buying a stake in the English club in the future.

Flamini, 39, is considered one of the richest retired footballers, especially since he owns a company interested in environmentally friendly projects.

Flamini founded his sustainable company, GF Biochemicals, in 2008, in partnership with a person named Pasquale Granata, but the former Arsenal star currently owns 60% of its shares and is CEO.

According to the American "Forbes" magazine, Flamini's net capital is currently 10 billion pounds (11.3 billion euros).

And the British newspaper “The Sun” believes that this amount is sufficient to buy one of the major clubs in the world of football, or even a large percentage of its shares.

During his football career, Flamini defended the colors of: French Marseille, Italian AC Milan, Spanish Getafe, and English Arsenal and Crystal Palace.

"It is clear that those clubs (Arsenal and Marseille) have a special place in my heart," Flamini told The Athletic. "I never forget where I came from, and where I played."

And he continued, in response to a question about his intention to buy Arsenal: “In life, you never know what could happen, but that is related to the right opportunity.”

Flamini continued, "I totally believe in choosing the right time, the right place, and the right people. We'll see what the future holds for me."

And the French added: "If you want something very much, the world will bring it to you."

Flamini defended the colors of the Arsenal shirt for 7 years, in two different periods (2004-2008) and (2013-2016).

He played with the "Gunners" 246 matches in all tournaments, during which he scored 13 goals and provided 16 assists. He was also crowned with the London team with five titles: the FA Cup 3 times (2005, 2014, 2015), and the Charity Shield Cup twice (2005). 2015).
