Saudi prince shows Sheffield steel

Prince Abdullah Bin Musaid Bin Abdelaziz has succeeded in a court battle to buy businessman Kevin McCabe’s 50% stake in English Premier League club Sheffield United for £5m ($6.2m), in line with a previous legal agreement. Prince Abdullah already owns the other 50%. In a statement he said his “first priority is to secure our position in the top tier for many years to come”. A spokesman said McCabe “sincerely hopes that he is proved wrong in relation to his deep misgivings about the suitability of Prince Abdullah as an appropriate custodian of Sheffield United.”
