New Beitar Jerusalem owner 'not interested in politics'
(Video) Unlike previous owner Arcadi Gaydamak, Guma Aguiar says he doesn't plan on leaving Israel

VIDEO - Jewish-American businessman Guma Aguiar, who recently took over the ownership of soccer powerhouse Beitar Jerusalem after donating $4 million to the team, said he has no political aspirations, unlike previous owner Arcadi Gaydamak.


"The only party I'm interested in forming is - just a party," he said jokingly.

Gaydamak returned to Russia after a few tumultuous years in Israel, including a major defeat in Jerusalem's municipal elections. But Aguiar, who decided to relocate to Israel with his family a little over two-and-a-half years ago, said he plans on staying put.


Aguiar has also funneled another $1.5 million to the capital's leading basketball team, Hapoel Jerusalem.


Speaking to Ynet at the Hadar Yosef Tennis Center in Tel Aviv, said he chose to support Jerusalem's team because the city "is the center of the universe."
