Marwan Koukash wants to launch a sensational double swoop for Oldham Athletic AND Oldham Roughyeds.
The Salford Red Devils owner, who last week underlined his commitment to transform the club into Super League heavyweights by announcing 12 high-profile new signings, had been linked with a move for Latics as we exclusively revealed in June.
And in a frank interview with M.E.N. Sport he has revealed that he not only remains interested in taking over at Boundary Park - but that he has also set his sights on adding Championship One Roughyeds to his portfolio and wants to build a new stadium in Oldham for the pair.
Dr Koukash reckons he can drag the rugby club into Super League and create a St Helens-Wigan style rivalry between them and Salford.
is this guy for real?
