A question I find myself asking sometimes at Amateur At Play HQ is – just how much self-awareness does Daniel Ek, CEO and multi billionaire possess? Not too often, mind you.
The answer would appear to be none whatsoever. Fresh from investing money during the pandemic in – well, anything that wasn’t music – Daniel “Mr Burns” Ek is now thinking of getting into the sporting world.
He might, however, want to get his head out of the clouds and look at the facts before he pontificates any further on this idea. His current net worth is £3.2 billion. Arsenal is currently valued at roughly £2 billion.
So unless he has all that available in cash, ready to make an offer, he might want to sit back down – and then finally remember that it’s the music world that have made him rich. Perhaps he might put his avaricious nature to good use for once?
