Just like Manchester United and Liverpool in England, Croatia’s Hajduk Split football club may soon have an American owner, according to reports by daily Jutarnji list.
An American consortium led by Michael Glover, and including American football star Ndamukong Suh, are reportedly interested in buying the club, and have even sent a letter of intent to the city of Split and met with the city Mayor Ivo Baldasar.
“Our plans are honest and long-term. We are interested in investing in Hajduk because we want to be a part of the future of this amazing club. Personally I know everything about Hajduk, last winter I was at Poljud stadium for the match against Dinamo Zagreb. I quickly understood how much the club means to the people,” said Glover to Jutarnji list.
“I was amazed by Split. I had been told a lot about Croatia but I could not imagine that it was that nice. I know that Hajduk Split is a club with a rich history, said 26-year-old Detroit Lions star Suh.
Although talks are still in the preliminary phase, Glover says that the consortiums intentions are clear and he wants the city of Split to realise that they are a serious partner.
