We all know Snoop Lion (still prefer to call him Snoop Dogg) is a big sports fan. We’ve even see him on ESPN and at sporting events, so it’s no surprise that he’s thinking about investing into a team.
Snoop Lion might take his love of soccer to a new level.
The hip-hop star, who earlier this year changed his name from Snoop Dogg, told theDaily Record that he is considering making a financial investment in Glasgow Celtic after watching the team beat Barcelona recently in Champions League play.
He said Celtic’s victory over Barca showed that the team is “a big deal” and he admires the passion of the club’s fans.
“I haven’t really thought how much (I would invest). I don’t need to run a soccer club but enough of a percentage to get me on the board so I can be heard,” he told the newspaper.
He is a noted soccer fan and is one of the official spokesmen for EA Sports’ “FIFA 13″ video game.
Snoop Lion said he asked David Beckham about the club and even said he’d try to lure the current Los Angeles Galaxy star to the team if he buys in.
“I asked my man David about Celtic and he was like, ‘Yeah, teams don’t come much bigger.’ I would try and sign him up for a season, but he is pretty happy over here,” he told the newspaper.
“L.A. is home for him and his family now — but I would have to at least make that offer to my boy. We have lunch when we can, so next time, you know, I am going to speak to him about it. Never say never,” he told the Record.
