Some barmy quotes from Boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather have emerged in the Daily Star, with the 41-year-old claiming that he ‘loves Newcastle’ and may be open to investing in the club as he looks for ‘new business opportunities’.
Now it’s not April Fool’s Day yet, but you’d be excused for thinking it was after reading this story.
It’s borderline laughable, with the cherry on the top being Mayweather’s bizarre claim that he might be able to get ‘good friend’ Cristiano Ronaldo to finish his career off at Newcastle!
Here’s what he’s had to say:
‘You better believe if I were to invest in I would be back partying there often,’
‘I love Newcastle, those guys like to party as hard as any city I have been to anywhere in the world.
‘I met some of the players last year and they are good guys. I am always open to new business opportunities and I love all sports, but I invest with my head not my heart.
‘Investing with your heart is the quickest way to lose money. But if somebody put together a business plan and my people looking over it and went ‘Floyd that can make money’ then I would invest. Soccer might not be my game but I’ve got connections everywhere.
‘Cristiano Ronaldo has been a long-time supporter and buddy of mine, so I might even be able to get him to finish his career off at Newcastle.’
