A lot of Newcastle United fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the latest claim to emerge following Wednesday’s CAT hearing.
The hearing between St James Holdings Limited and the Premier League is expected to indicate whether the league acted improperly with regards to its handling of the bid to take over Newcastle, which collapsed in July 2020.
On Friday, journalist Simon Zekaria tweeted: “I have learnt that SJHL’s competition claim alleges that beIN Sports pressurised the PL to block the sale of @NUFC while negotiating a three-year broadcasting rights deal to 2025.”
Are you confident the takeover will happen?
Toon fans flooded to Zekaria’s tweet to share their excitement at the latest claim to emerge in the Tyneside club’s hopes of the proposed takeover getting over the line.
What did these Newcastle fans have to say?
Newcastle fans have been left in limbo for well over a year now, with the PIF consortium’s reported interest in purchasing the Tyneside club initially being reported last summer.
