Dozy Mmobuosi believes his skin colour has subjected him to excessive checks in his bid to buy football club Sheffield United


Nigerian tech entrepreneur and billionaire, Dozy Mmobuosi, 43, has lamented over the excessive checks in his bid to take over English Championship club Sheffield United.

The businessman is allegedly close to finalizing a 90m takeover of the Blades having held talks with the present owner, Prince Abdullah and directors.

Speaking about the delay in the takeover deal on a podcast with former Manchester United player Rio Ferdinand, Mmobousi hinted that his skin color may have subjected him to excessive checks in his bid to buy the football club.

‘I am now a fan of this club. I told my wife a couple of years ago that maybe one day when I get involved in soccer, I will only get to support the club I own.

‘The only team I ever supported is the Super Eagles and I still support them till date, and that is my national team,’ Mmobousi said.

‘Hopefully I get approved by the EPL and you’ll find me a capable partner. I’m a long-term, focused person. I’m not here to just take and go.

‘I believe we’ll get to the Premier League and remain there. I intend to run this club not just as a business that benefits the fans and myself, but the community.’

Dozy Mmobuosi created a foundation in 2021 where he promotes Africa’s progress to a world where Africans can thrive.
