English football club Sunderland have confirmed that they have reached an agreement with 22 years old billionaire to acquire a majority stake in the club.

Sunderland are a club in League one, the third tier of English football league system.

I don’t normally take too much interest in League one club but the age of their prospective new owner got my attention.

At 22, most of us were probably still in our parents house or in school, depending on our parents to survive but Kyril Louis is already a billionaire at 22.

Kyril Louis-Dreyfus will become the new own of Sunderland, probably in the new year.

An agreement has already been reached with the club and all that is needed now is approval from those in charge of running the English Football League (EFL).

Kyril Louis-Dreyfus father, Robert Louis-Dreyfus died in 2009 and his mother Margarita has been in charge of running the family business ever since.

Margarita was a computer salesgirl until she met Robert and they got married in 1992.

While waiting for the EFL approval, he talked about Sunderland prestigious history and how he planned to create an entertaining team that embodies the spirit and culture of the fans, in an attempt to reconnect the club with it fan base, who describe as very important in his part to bring success to Sunderland.

Kyril Louis-Dreyfus plan is to see Sunderland promoted to the top tier of English football, the English Premier league.
