People will see that taking over Wrexham AFC ‘isn’t weird at all’, says Ryan Reynolds
Wrexham AFC co-owner Ryan Reynolds has said that people will see that taking over the club isn’t “weird at all”.
The Deadpool star, who owns the club with fellow actor Rob McElhenney, made the comments during an appearance on The One Show on the BBC to promote his new blockbuster, Free Guy.
He also praised Wrexham’s community and described the club as “incredible”.
In the new film he stars as a background character in a video game who decides to become the hero.
Welsh presenter Alex Jones said: “It’s weird that you’ve chosen Wrexham, but we’re chuffed. It’s amazing”
Reynolds replied. “They’re amazing. “I think once people get to know Wrexham a little bit better they’re going to see how it’s not weird at all. It’s spot on. We’re really excited. ”
He also said: “Myself and Rob McElhenney is my partner on the project. We’re very very excited. The Wrexham club is incredible.
“More incredible still is the community around it, so this is as much a project investing in the Wrexham red dragons as it is investing in the Wrexham community itself so we’re really excited.”
