I suppose billionaires are entitled to their whims. But ought an African billionaire to be investing in an English football club?

Surely an African billionaire can find worthwhile whims in his own beleaguered continent before reaching out to poor undernourished Arsenal. He hardly promotes support for our own much criticised and pressurised development budget.

Although his actions are probably not as damaging as say India’s space programme, or Tata’s closure of Redcar.
