Diddy To Save Crystal Palace Soccer Team
RAP star P DIDDY plans to put the Cristal into Crystal Palace with a shock bid for the struggling London footie team.
The hip-hop mogul has decided he wants to be the next filthy rich foreign owner of an English club. Eagle eyes … P Diddy plans to back Crystal Palace
And Diddy, real name Sean Combs, is planning to splash some of his reported £360million on the Selhurst Park side who gave Sun columnist IAN WRIGHT his big break in football.
The bankrupt club is in chaos, facing relegation from the Coca-Cola Championship after having ten points docked for going into administration
Former owner SIMON JORDAN was no stranger to the jet-set – so at least the poor fans are used to flamboyant playboy owners with a taste for the high life.
Diddy’s swoop for The Eagles would bring some much needed bling back to south east London.
Last night his UK spokesman confirmed the multi-millionaire is in the market for Palace. He also added that the New Yorker has his eye on another big club.
A source said: “Diddy was in London meeting football fixers a couple of weeks ago. The finance is in place, he’s just deciding who he thinks he’ll make a bid for.
“Portsmouth were mentioned but he thought Palace were a better idea.
“He could cover their debt and bankroll a return to the Premier League. He liked the name as well.”
English football is big business and I’m surprised it’s taken the loaded rappers so long to get involved.
I only live round the corner from Palace and I’d be happy to show Diddy the best pubs in Forest Hill and East Dulwich.
He’d be welcome to a can of Irn-Bru at Smart Towers too.
There’s some Selhurst Park history that I can fill him in on.
It was the scene of ERIC CANTONA‘s kung-fu kick on a fan. DAVID BECKHAM scored his stunning goal from the halfway line for Man Utd when Wimbledon were sharing the ground with Palace.
Speaking of Becks, the crocked star’s commercial success in America with LA Galaxy must have had an impact on Diddy. But I think he should be looking north of the border to spend his pennies.
If he bought my team Hibs, he could be P Hibby and park his yacht in the docks in Leith.
