English football club “Sheffield United” has received 3.5 million euros from the family of the former leader of the terrorist group “al-Qaeda” (banned in Russia) Osama bin Laden. About it reports “Interfax”.
According to the publication, evidence was given during the hearing in the High court of London where the right to obtain full control of the club challenged the co-owners Kevin McCabe and member of the Royal family of Saudi Arabia, Prince Abdullah bin Mosaad bin Abdulaziz al-Saud.
According to the lawyer of Prince Andreas Gledhill, the money came from one of the family members of Osama bin Laden. It is noted that McCabe knew about the source of these funds. The latter denies the allegations.
In the season-2018/19, “Sheffield United” took second place in the championship (the second power division championship of the country) and earned the right to play in next season in the English Premier League.
