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? :lol:

What an absolute idiot. I wish he'd take his money and his ambition and go an embarrass rugby union with it.

You aren't allowed to own two RL clubs - one of London's problems when Lenagan bought Wigan and he had to unload his London shares.

 

Still,he is the only owner of a RL club to feature in Private Eye

Is it just me or does anyone else think this fella is a breath of fresh air? he is constantly in the papers, he has a high profile, bags of cash, and wants to be involved with rugby league! he should be applauded for his enthusiasm, and he may help to attract other money men into the sport.

Oldham's current stadium wouldn't even allow them into the Championship so why anyone would whinge about being built a new stadium I have no idea. It certainly sums up Rugby League fans though.

Salford being a force in RL seems far from reality so far. I think this is one guy who sticks by his word and prides himself on that.

Assuming for a moment ownership rules could be dealt with by Mrs Koukash owning a club, or by some other means, is he rich enough to fund such a venture?

 

Clearly he's got a few bob, but I was under the impression he was into the tens of millions rather than hundreds, clearly I'm probably wrong, but he'll need to spend or under write a fair wedge to make this a reality!

ive wondered how much he's worth too...

his "horse racing empire" costs a fortune,he's committed to spending a few quid at salford...

add to that another RL club...plus a black hole football club....plus a new stadium!!

id say he'd need £250m+ to be able to fund all that

acutally it is'nt.....they are already in SL and already have a new stadium....spending a few quid on the squad is all that was needed

I trust that was with tongue firmly in cheek. I certainly hope so!

I really cannot understand the Doom and Gloomers.    Especially from Oldham.     Oldham RL are a sleeping giant and under Mr Hamilton they will stay asleep.   

 

Dr K  is a breath of fresh air and although I am disappointed he is looking at Latics for Mrs Koukash to take a stake in the Roughyeds would be great.

 

He may also be looking to buy control of the Oldham Chron - (is it still Hirst Kidd & Rennie ?) & then he will print his own publicity.

 

A MAJOR man and dont doubt his willingness to upset a few dinosaurs along the way.

absolute breath of fresh air into the sport and i cant beleive people are knocking him and suggesting he goes elsewhere
we should be trying to attract more of the likes of him and Nahaboo instead of putting them off

seems to me that there is a lot of jealousy from the teams with no prospective backers and a fear of the "sleeping giants" finally waking up and challenging their place at the top table

The doctor is great and doing wonders for RL already. Let's just enjoy all this fun whilst it lasts - which I hope will be a very long time.
