'FIFA has made it known' – Report shares what Saudi government must do ahead of NUFC takeover – originally posted on Sportslens.com

According to Eurosport journalist Manu Lonjon, world football’s governing body FIFA wants the Saudi Arabia government to resolve the numerous disputes involving their domestic clubs ahead of Newcastle United takeover.

However, their concern about how the country’s domestic league is run doesn’t in any way jeopardize the Public Investment Fund’s proposed £300 million takeover of the Premier League club.

The English Premier League has the final say on the takeover, and is currently carrying out its Directors’ and Owners’ test.

Amnesty International and BeIN sports have both written to the Premier League to block PIF’s attempt to own Newcastle given Saudi’s human rights record and broadcasting piracy accusations.
