It was predicted that famous Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds would concentrate on managing the English soccer team.
According to the British media Daily Mail on the 14th (Korean time), Reynolds recently purchased a mansion in the Murford area, located in the northeast of Wrexham, England.
It is known that the price of the mansion he bought is 1.5 million pounds (about 2.4 billion won). Canadian-born Hollywood actor Reynolds has appeared in numerous works such as ‘Blade 3’, ‘Green Lantern’, ‘Deadpool’, and ‘Detective Pikachu’. In ‘Deadfall’ released in 2016, he played the main character and was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor, and he is the husband of American actress Blake Lively.
He is also known as a ‘soccer fanatic’. In 2020, he acquired Wrexham AFC, an English lower league team, with American actor Rob McEl Henry and became co-owner. Founded in 1864, Wrexham has a tradition of being the 3rd oldest soccer team in the world. 메이저사이트
Currently belonging to the 5th division of England, with 4 games left in the season, they are leading (103 points) and are about to be promoted to League 2 (4th division). Reynolds returned home to New York on a private plane after “intuitive” the game against Notts County on the 10th.
Reynolds, who has such an extraordinary affection for the Wrexham club, seems to have purchased the Merford mansion in order to focus more on the management of the club in the face of promotion to the 4th division.
His Merfort Mansion is close to Wrexham’s home ground. Murford, in particular, is a small town with a population of only 2,500. It is interpreted that the reason why a large Hollywood star has even built a house in such a remote place is to make Murford a major base in the future.
The Daily Mail said, ‘In order for Wrexham to be promoted to League 2, it must either end the season by keeping the lead to the end or go through the playoffs. Even for owner Reynolds, Wrexham’s promotion has become more desperate.’
