New Saudi takeover theory arrives from Simon Jordan after arbitration is delayed until 2022

Simon Jordan has told talkSPORT he believes the Saudi takeover has been delayed due to petty accusations being thrown around by both sides.

The former Crystal Palace owner – who believed the failed takeover would be given the green light last summer – has stuck the knife in on the deal in recent days, and even got into a spat live-on-air with Amanda Staveley.

He called Toon fans “gullible” for believing that the takeover will still go ahead; a stance that, in fairness, looks increasingly accurate since the news of a delay until 2022.

Now, Jordan has spoken about how he thinks the decision came about from both parties to adjourn the case until next year, citing allegations from both sides as the main reason.

Here is what he said on talkSPORT yesterday:

“The reasons why this arbitration, in my view, has fallen down at the first stage is because I think this is what has happened:

“They’ve walked into a room and the Premier League have said, ‘We want you to unequivocally prove that there is no link between the PIF, the Saudi state and piracy’ and the Saudis have gone, ‘Hang on a second. We want you to prove that there is no link of corruption of the big six having an undue influence’.

“This is my supposition. The Premier League has said, ‘We don’t have to prove anything to you. We’re the Premier League. You’re wanting to join our gang. We’ve got an issue with you. It’s incumbent upon you to disclose what we’re asking you to disclose’.

“All of a sudden, transparency isn’t so important for those that are calling for transparency.”

  1. Whats new, another day another negative article.

    It’s a choice to be positive or negative.

  2. Jordan is an idiot. No one walked into any room and said X,Y, or Z. What needs to be said needs to be said in front of the arbitration panel once all the evidence is at hand.
    The issue is what hasn’t been disclosed, what isn’t being disclosed, and why. Probably more to do with the upcoming CAT.

    interestingly both words can have a good outcome… If a doctors tells you the test results are negative, is that a good or bad thing? 😀

  5. This takeover is immoral it should never go ahead, with all the evidence that the Premier league have on the Saudies it would be even worse than the super league and I’m a Newcastle fan.
