So far, we've seen investment in the form of:I’m intrigued to see how they do it. Everyone can see Usmanov is putting money in indirectly, and that may be the way forward as it would allow future commercial tie-ups and naming rights deals. But also a risk that we become the subject of a corruption investigation at some point if it becomes too obvious.
Of course Usmanov could just invest in us and become a shareholder, but that wouldn’t boost our commercial incomings so we wouldn’t suddenly be able to go and spunk a fortune.
The fact that Ancelotti is here (and Usmanov was deffo involved) makes me think they do have a plan which will allow us to spend the money we need to. And there’s enough smart people on the board to be aware of the implications of falling foul of FFP. So am excited to see what happens next.
I think my mate at Rovio said the sponsorship will end after this season.All sheer and utter conjecture on my behalf, but all quite likely. The only difficulty would be shirt sponsors having to run their course - unless Moshiri/Usmanov do have shares in Rovio and SportPesa. In which case they could sign off early cancellations and/or offer to buy them out.
