Newcastle demand that their fans stop dressing up as Arabs

The Newcastle United He has asked his fans to stop dressing up as Arabs if they normally do not, to avoid the images seen these days in the vicinity of the stadium.

Some fans have dressed in turbans and djellaba in recent days to celebrate the purchase of the team by a fund from Saudi Arabia.

Newcastle United kindly ask their fans to stop wearing traditional Arab or Middle Eastern inspired clothing if they are not doing so regularly. Nobody inside the fund has been offended by this attitude on the part of the fans. We understand that it has been a positive gesture and to welcome usNewcastle said in a statement.

However, there is a possibility that dressing that way may be culturally inappropriate and offend others.”They added.

Newcastle United, one of the clubs participating in the current Premier League season, has become the ‘new rich’ of football. The Public Investment Fund (PIF), controlled by the state of Saudi Arabia, closed the purchase of the ‘Magpies’. The confirmation was finalized thanks to the approval of the organization of the English championship.

The owner of the English club, Mike Ashley, has completed an operation that was stopped short by the Premier League in April 2020, due to the piracy suffered in Saudi Arabia by the teleoperator beIN Sports, in possession of the television rights in the country .

However, Saudi Arabia has solved this problem and the operation, which was stopped awaiting trial in January, has been resolved in just two days. Another problem, such as the fact that Newcastle is now controlled by a state such as Saudi Arabia, has been dismissed since the Premier League considers PIF, the fund that invests the money, as a separate entity. .
