American Footballer Malcolm Jenkins Invests In Clarets
Two-time Super Bowl champion Malcolm Jenkins has taken a stake in Premier League Burnley Football Club. The NFL player has become a minority stakeholder in the ALK Capital investment group that took over the Lancashire club last year. Jenkins, who currently plays for New Orleans Saints is a two-time Super Bowl winner and three-time Pro Bowl Safety.
The twelve year NFL veteran visited Turf Moor for the first time at the weekend and was given a tour by Burnley chairman Alan Pace, before watching Burnley take on Manchester City at Etihad Stadium.
Speaking about investing in the Premier League club Malcolm Jenkins said, “I’m excited to enter this new relationship. Burnley Football Club is known for its tenacity, work ethic, good sportsmanship and efficient operational infrastructure. It is a great fit for me personally and my company to invest in the growth of the sport alongside a historic organisation that aligns with our values.”
Burnley chairman Alan Pace said, “The club was thrilled to have him as part of our investment group. Malcolm has a wealth of experience, not only as an elite sportsman, but through his successful business and philanthropic enterprises. We look forward to him helping our efforts to develop the club on and off the pitch.”
