Hip – hop star Snoop Dogg has always been a fan for football and has decided to move to the east to buy shares of Scottish club Celtic and also have mentioned his interest in buying legendary Ex Manchester United and Real Madrid player David Beckham.
According to the Scottish daily, it is reported that it was last month that Snoop Dogg decided to buy Celtic after being impressed by their performance against Barcelona in the Champions league. The rapper is prepared to invest Millions on the Scottish club and it believed that he has planned everything for a long time with his friend Beckham. And Snoop – who was once banned from coming to the UK after a series of drug and firearms offences has said:
‘I am passionate about my sport. The boxes at Celtic would never be the same once I have hosted a party there. I got a lot of interest in soccer. It’s not a new thing for hip hop stars to invest in sports teams but it is a new thing for hip hop stars to invest in soccer teams. I didn’t catch the whole Barcelona game but I watched the highlights. I know Barcelona are a big deal, and it shows Celtic are a big deal as well.
“I see how passionate Celtic fans are about their team and I could see myself making an investment if any of the board wanted to sell. I haven’t really thought how much. I don’t need to run a soccer club but enough of a percentage to get me on the board so I can be heard. I want to bring a bit of Snoop to things.”
