Dr Marwan Koukash has been in the limelight ever since he took over at the Salford Red Devils however he is being over shadowed by his wife as she attempts to buy rival Super League side Bradford Bulls.
This is a somewhat controversial move as we do need more money in the game and more owners like Koukash in the game however that does not mean that the Doctor and his family should own all fourteen clubs in the competition.
Bradford are in financial turmoil after being deducted six points for going into administration and have lost key players such as Nick Scruton and Jarrod Sammut who both left the club due to the uncertainty of the clubs future.
Koukash insisted that their will be no conflict of interest between the two clubs if his wife, Mandy, is successful by comparing it to him having two horses from different yards in the same race. With all due respect to the doctor that is a poor comparison and I’m sure that if Bradford and Salford come up against each other in a game that could seal the Red Devils play off fate that he may have a word with his wife to help him out. He has piled millions into the Salford ‘Red Devilution’ and I’m sure will do anything to make his side a success.
Marwan will also have to keep an eye on his twitter feed as he has been fined by the RFL for comments made on twitter and if the club want to avoid being punished time after time they will have to put a lid on the bosses social media rants.
Yes he is a breath of fresh air in the sport and he does have some good ideas although that does not give him the right to get away with any indiscipline.
