From boy soldier to millionaire racehorse owner and now Rugby League club chairman. JAMIE JONES-BUCHANAN meets up with one of the most talked about men in the game, Dr Marwan Koukash, the new Salford City Reds owner.

“If I set myself a target, I use every avenue and every method, everything I have to achieve that target. The way I see it is like this - this is my dream, this is my vision and I won't let anything get in the way.”

“Now, I'm not a Rugby League expert, I’m a business man, but the way I look at it, with the rules and regulations that people impose in the game I would say that we are deliberately making the game a second class sport.”

It will make interesting reading for sure. I wouldn't want to get the wrong side of the good doctor as he is man on a mission in all aspects of his life.

Great statement from the doc ''with the rules and regulations that people impose in the game I would say that we are deliberately making the game a second class sport.”

Too many journo type, admin men non producers for my liking too

I even got a new word from this article - thanks JJB - Verisimilitude


Whilst I do not suffer fools gladly, I will always gladly make fools suffer

A man is getting along on the road of wisdom when he realises that his opinion is just an opinion

4/1 on that Koukash would make a better fist of goal line defence than JJB already.

Just read this article over lunch - would reccomend it. Was on the fence about the good doc, but away from his bombastic press releases I think he genuinely does have the game's best interests at heart. He can cetainly see the value of the game and how good it is we just need to "get the message out there" (to borrow a Stevoism). We could do with a few more Marwan's in our game, as he explains in the article.

 

It doesn't make mean any more convinced that he won't just storm off in a huff if things don't go his way, mind.
