The Prince’s son-in-law, Prince Musa’ad, was unveiled as the club’s new chairman shortly after Prince Abdullah won control of the Blades. At 26 years old, Prince Musa’ad is the youngest chairman in the Premier League.

Just over a month ago, the appointments of Jeremy Tutton, McCabe, his son Simon and Tony Currie to the board of The Sheffield United Football Club Limited were terminated.

Jan van Winckel and Joseph Giansiracusa, two of Prince Abdullah’s trusted confidants, are also on the board.
