Sheffield United took a loan from Osama bin Laden family
The family of the most famous terrorist in the world, Osama Bin Laden, provided Sheffield United with a £3 million loan.
As you know, Sheffield United finished the 2018/19 season in second place of the Championship. The club will spend the next campaign in the Premier League.
The Blades are doing well, despite the conflict of co-owners Kevin McCabe and Prince Abdullah bin Musa’ad bin Abdulaziz, which has been going on for several years.
On Thursday, the English businessman and Saudi Prince met again in court, and the most interesting part of the routine process was Prince Abdullah lawyer’s admission that Sheffield United borrowed money from Saleh Mohammed Bin Laden, who was a member of Al-Qaeda former leader’s family.
Separately, the lawyer stressed that McCabe was aware of the source of money and didn’t express any objections, according to The Guardian.
