There are a lot of celebrities around the world who love football club, and unfortunately not all of them can get a mention in the top 10 list. So, here is my list of the top ten celebrity fans. enjoy…

10. Jay-Z

The 40-year-old rapper has been an Arsenal fan for a number of years, but many questioned his love for the club after he was photographed as a guest of Manchester City when they beat Arsenal last season. However, a few months back Jay-Z cleared up any allegations that he was nothing but a Gooner. Speaking to Arsenal Magazine the hip-hop star said:

“After that game the press started reporting that I was a Manchester City fan, I am really glad all that has been cleared up and that everybody in the UK knows that I am an Arsenal fan.”

The lyricist was made aware of the Gunners and took a shine to them when used to play for them, he goes on to say:

“It was about five years ago now, when Thierry Henry was at the club, I saw him play and I just thought he was an amazing player. Ever since then I have been a big fan of the club.”

Jay-Z has stated that he would love to hook up with the Arsenal squad for lunch and has also openly invited them to attend his next gig in London, whenever this maybe. Beyonce’s other half has also hinted that he may invest some of his £500 million earnings in the club should the opportunity arise in the near future. 99 Problems but his love for Arsenal isn’t one of them.

9.

The American film director, producer, writer and actor is an Arsenal fan, and a big one at that. The 53-year-old is known to wear the Arsenal Jersey whilst on set and is a close and personal friend of former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry.
