Newcastle United supporter group Toon For Change have issued a series of questions to the Premier League in a bid to gain clarity on the Saudi takeover front.
This comes after top flight CEO Richard Masters broke his silence yesterday in a letter to Newcastle MP Chi Onwurah – only for it to raise more questions than answers for NUFC fans.
Here’s the FIVE questions Toon For Change have put to the Premier League today:
1. Why were the buyer and seller given private assurances regarding the Owner and Director test prior to the test beginning?
2. The Owner and Director test started on or around 16th April 2020. Why was information regarding the make up of the proposed board not queried until the end of June 2020?
3. Why were the Premier League reluctant to accept assurances from the Saudi Royal Court regarding who would have control of our football club?
4. If the press were not briefed, how were numerous journalists able to publish articles detailing aspects of the takeover throughout the process?
5. If the Premier League were not satisfied with the information and answers provided why did they not reject the proposed takeover allowing arbitration to begin?
The Premier League may have spoken out for the first time in months yesterday, but it’s time we got total transparency on an exhausting process that has toyed with the hopes and dreams of a passionate fanbase and the future of a deprived football club and city for almost FIVE months now.
