It has been a lifelong dream for him.
But poor Louis Tomlinson has been left devastated today after his bid to takeover the Doncaster Rovers was rejected.
After attempting to raise the money through a crowd-funder scheme to make a bid for his beloved club with businessman John Ryan, the One Direction singer’s pledge has been thrown out by the Football League.
But despite an earlier statement – which Mr Ryan says was not released by himself or Louis - claiming they had not met the funding amount, he now says the issue was with the Football League.
According to Mr Ryan, the Football League reportedly wanted “cleared funds of £5M from day one”, but he claims the pair had “assets well above that figure”.
He said: “The crowd-funder didn’t succeed and we’re bitterly sorry about that. But the real problem has been with the Football League who have put out very onerous rules and regulations and Louis and I have been the first victims of it. Unless you have bagfulls of cash you’re going to be turned down.”
Adding that decision was “completey outrageous and so unfair”, Mr Ryan said both he and Louis are angry with the Football League.
He added: “I’m really cheesed off, as is Louis, with the way we’ve been treated by the Football League … It’s a black day for me and it’s a black day for football.
“If they want to kick out people who are trying to do the right thing, like Louis and I, then fine … Louis is a real upcoming guy who really wants success for his hometown club and we’ve been thrown out.”
Dismissing rumours that he and Louis did not have enough money to make the £5M minimum bid, he fumed: “I told them I had assets well above that figure and it’s just been disregarded.”
We’re not the only ones gutted for Louis, with Directioners taking to Twitter in hordes to express their anger.
