Elon Musk: Tweet on purchasing Manchester United was joke
(MENAFN) Billionaire Elon Musk stated he has no plans to purchase football club Manchester United, hours after sparking internet frenzy with a tweet.
“No, this is a long-running joke on Twitter. I’m not buying any sports teams,” Musk answered early on Wednesday after he got a question by a Twitter user if he was serious on taking over the floundering English football team.
“Although, if it were any team, it would be Man U. They were my fav (sic) team as a kid,” he also said.
In his original tweet, Musk, the world’s richest person, wrote: “I’m buying Manchester United ur (sic) welcome.”
Musk’s comments were largely greeted with skepticism, given his history of confusing and unusual claims on Twitter.
On the other hand, he clearly gave a glimmer of hope to United fans unfulfilled by the club’s poor performances and declining fortunes.
