McCabe (inset) and HRH Prince Abdullah bin Mosaad bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, who both control 50 per cent of United’s parent company, are locked in a battle for sole control after their partnership collapsed earlier this term.
Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s visit to Bristol City, Wilder said: “Kevin recognised there has to be harmony and direction to supporters (at United’s player of the year event) on Sunday. I imagine Prince Abdullah is the same.”
According to a statement published by United, Prince Abdullah launched his attempt “in response” to a process instigated by one of McCabe’s companies four months ago. The Star understands that was an offer to purchase the Saudi Arabian’s stake in Blades Leisure Limited.
