The husband of Amanda Staveley has dropped a quite subtle hint on Twitter that he would still love the proposed takeover of Newcastle United by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) consortium to happen.
As per a tweet from the Newcastle Consortium Supporters Ltd (NCSL), Mehrdad Ghodoussi has started following the page, who are, according to their bio, ‘challenging the EPL for breach of anti competition law during the proposed takeover of NUFC.’
Are the Premier League to blame for the Newcastle takeover collapse?
The NCSL are looking to get the prospective £300m deal between Staveley’s group and Mike Ashley back on, and it looks as if Ghodoussi has given his full backing and support to them.
This follows a template of a letter that the NCSL have made for fans of the St. James’ Park faithful to write to their local MP’s to in order to further put pressure on the Premier League, with the ultimate aim of reversing the decision to fail the takeover in the North East.
Will the NCSL be successful in reversing the takeover decision?
With the NCSL already seemingly having the backing of Ghodoussi, added to the pressure that the local MP’s could put on the English top flight, perhaps the decision to fail the takeover by England’s highest division could well be reversed.
However, it would likely have to go to a court case in front of a judge in order to do so, and it is anyone’s guess as to how the legal dispute would be settled. Fans will simply have to sit and hope and for now.
