Though a state-funded takeover of Liverpool has been doubted, Saudi sports minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al-Faisal has talked up the “benefits.” Prince Abdulaziz is a member of the ruling royal family of Saudi Arabia, and has been in his position as minister of sports since 2020.

“I think they both have big fanbases.” Unsurprisingly, Prince Abdulaziz dismissed the moral issues regarding any further Saudi investment into the Premier League, insisting that the Newcastle takeover and subsequent sponsorships fell within the league’s regulations.

That has been largely dismissed by journalists associated with Fenway Sports Group and Liverpool, but speaking to Sky News, Prince Abdulaziz admitted the state would “benefit” from any takeover.

“The Premier League is the best league in the world, everyone’s watching the Premier League, it’s the most-watched league in Saudi and I think in the region.

“There are die-hard fans of these teams in the Kingdom, so it would be a benefit for everyone I think.” It was put to Prince Abdulaziz that United could be seen as a more worthwhile asset for Saudi investors than Liverpool due to their historic popularity around the world.

That’s created a lot of excitement in the Premier League, in Newcastle, but also for us in Saudi.”

The House of Saud is led by King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, whose son, Mohammed bin Salman, serves as chairman of the Public Investment Fund (PIF) which bought Newcastle last year.
