After Fernandes buys QPR, another local entrepreneur eyes Man Utd

Georgetown, 19 August. It seems that Malaysian businessmen are on a buying spree of English football teams this month. Barely hours after aviation tycoon Tan Sri Tony Fernandes concluded the purchase of Queen’s Park Rangers, another Malaysian businessman, Kuthubudeen Maidin Ali announced his interest in acquiring the EPL giant, Manchester United.

Kuthubudeen, who owns the Kuthubudeen Nasi Kandar restaurant in Penang told reporters today that he has been eyeing Man Utd for a long time. “I have been an MU fan for a long time, since 1986. I have supported them during theirs ups and downs and I know every one of their players and managers. I even received a Christmas card from Eric Cantona 10 years ago. But I always thought that they can do better and be the greatest team ever. And I intend to help by acquiring the team

When asked how he plans to acquire the team, Kuthubudeen said “I have saved up some money – RM 2140 to be exact and I have a little bit more in my coin box. I also plan to sell my Nokia phone. So in total I have about RM 3825 to invest. I don’t know how much that Fernandes fella paid for QPR but I think what I have should be enough to clinch MU”.

Kuthubudeen also added “I have big plans for MU. The first thing I want to do is to change the crest. That devil picture is no good –it will bring bad luck. Even our JAIS guys said that devil picture is haram. So I have designed a new crest which will be more positive and show the synergy with my restaurant business”.

MNN has learnt that Kuthubudeen also has intends to appoint the Malaysian football team coach, Datuk Rajagopal, as the manager of MU after the acquisition. “I don’t like Alex Ferguson… he is a cocky old cow. I am sure Rajagopal can do a better job”, Kuthubudeen explained.

When pressed for details, Kuthubudeen admitted that he has not actually spoken to anyone at Man Utd about his ambitions.

Meanwhile, Man Utd manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, when asked by MNN’s UK correspondent, said “I have never heard of this freakin’ Kuthubudeen. Whoever thinks that we are for sale, can take their money and shove it”.

Heard that MU might float its shares in Asia too. Kuthubuddeen should start main kutu with his friends to collect more money so can buy substantial amount of shares. Nothing is impossible. Minority shareholders also have rights. purrr *giggles*
