Rihanna showed her love for football during the World Cup with her unique brand of live-tweeting through games and now she’s ready to get very serious about it by investing in a Premier League club-Liverpool.
Ri-Ri has been advised to buy Liverpool by her close friend and Chelsea star Didier Drogba, El Mundo Deporti vo reports.
While it seems highly unlikely Liverpool’s current owners – the Fenway Sports Group – would sell given the Reds impressive form last season, the prospect of Rihanna sharing a seat in the directors’ box with Newcastle chief Mike Ashley sounds really good.
The Diamonds singer is also keen to start her own footballing academy in Barbados.
“At first we thought Rihanna’s desire to be involved with soccer on a business level would soon blow over,” a source close to the singer said.
“We figured she was still on a high from the World Cup. But now it’s becoming clear she really is serious. She’s talking about setting up a football academy in her native Barbados. Then her big dream is to be involved with a UK club.”
After Germany’s win over Argentina in the World Cup final Rihanna was pictured holding the coveted trophy.
“I touched the cup, held the cup, kissed the cup,” she tweeted.
“Took a selfie wit the cup!!! I meeeaan…… what is YO bucket list looking like brush?”
