The 62 year old Malaysian billionaire, businessman, investor and owner of Cardiff City Vincent Tan is interested in expanding his portfolio and turn into the owner of another club but instead of only focusing in England, Vincent Tan has expressed his desire to try the market in the USA as he believes that the Major League Soccer (MLS) can become a very valuable asset within the upcoming years.
“Investing in MLS, think it’s long term. If we invest now, in 20 years it will be worth a lot.” Vicent Tan said as he revealed his interest and desire of taking control of a club in the MLS.
It still remains unsure as to exactly which club Vincent Tan is keeping a close eye on but this isn’t the first time that the Malaysian has released hints concerning the possibility of expanding his market from Europe to the American Soccer League which is still very young in comparison to other top European Leagues.
Last month Vincent Tan told the media: “I’m looking to buy another club in Europe and then I may invest in a club in the US, the MLS.”
Vincent Tan has had problems with former employees and managers of Cardiff City. On October of the previous year, Tan suspended Iain Moody who was the main person behind the recruitment staff of Cardiff City and this suspension arrived after Moody had overspent £15 million during the summer transfer window of that year and Iain Moody was eventually removed from his position.
Another incident occurred between a former staff member of Cardiff City only this time it arrived after the Scottish manager Malky Mackay displayed to the media his intention of boosting and upgrading his squad during the January transfer window of 2014 as he needed to sign players in order to avoid Cardiff City getting sacked from their debut season in the Premier League but the club was inevitably relegated back to the English Championship League.
