Image for Newcastle United: Fans flock as new board member appointed

A whole host of Newcastle United fans on Twitter were excited to see that a new board member has been added.

Since PIF bought a majority stake in Newcastle, the boardroom has been very small on numbers, with the likes of Amanda Staveley, Mehrdad Ghodoussi, Jamie Reuben and Yasir Al-Rumayyan occupying the seats.

Will Eddie Howe keep Newcastle up?





However, the former two have taken a hands-on approach to running the club under their management contract and PIF may have wanted someone upstairs on a more consistent basis, which is why Majed AlSorour has been appointed as a new board member – as revealed via his LinkedIn page.

A lot of Newcastle fans are excited on Twitter about this new appointment.

What have these Newcastle fans been saying?

“makes sense, hes the one thats been at most of the games, explains why people couldn’t identify him”


“Watch him in the first game against spurs he was emotional… with the flags and atmosphere looks a top bloke”


“Sponsorships incoming”


“What a legend”


“Hes very passionate about the Toon on his LinkedIn”


“I’m sure Alan Shearer will have free full access to Golf courses in Saudi now”


“Probably big sponsorship will get announced in Saudi….”


As pointed out by one Twitter user, this new board member has been pictured at games alongside people such as Al-Rumayyan and Staveley at home clashes this season, so he will already have a feeling for the club and should be able to get to work immediately.
