H.R.H. Prince Abdullah bin Mosa'ad Abdulaziz Al Sa'ud on...

The future of Bramall Lane...
"Bramall Lane is a historical stadium. We want to make it better; it can be improved in a lot of areas, but we'll never move out."

Working with Chris Wilder and Stephen Bettis...
"I want to be at the club. I want to improve it, and I want to look back in years to come and be proud of it. I want to work with Chris and Stephen. When we look back on the last transfer window in years, I think we'll be happy with the signings we have made."

Tony Currie...
"He is a big part of the club. He will always be treated with respect. I will meet him tomorrow, and for me he will always be part of this club."

Future ownership...
"I am not talking to any investors. I don't want to sell the club; I don't want to go 50/50 with other partners."

Women's team...
"I want to make it better. My daughter is a fan of football and wants to spend time with the women's team. She will look to help drive it forward."

Global brand...
"We have to think globally, must think much bigger than just Sheffield. The better the club, the better Sheffield United can be. We will always have Bramall Lane, but we want to have our fans all over the world."


H.H. Prince Musa'ad bin Khalid bin Musa'ad Al Sa'ud on...

His role...
"It is my dream job. I am confident we can drive the club forward alongside our manager. We want to grow the brand and remain a Premier League club. For me it is business as usual. I come from a business background; I'll be driving the strategy forward. I will live in Sheffield and I am very excited about that. There will be a focus on the academy, and improvement of facilities."


Chris Wilder on...

The owners...
"I have always been consistent with this. I work for the club, and the owners, we are all custodians and we need to play a part in keeping the club together. My relationship with both Prince Abdullah and Kevin McCabe has always been excellent. They have always been fully supportive, we couldn't have done it without both owners."

Next transfer window...
"In the summer we signed young, hungry players from The Championship who we thought could play in the Premier League. My confidence in this group is growing with every game. We are always looking to see what we need. We are maybe looking at two to three players coming in January."


Stephen Bettis on...

Moving forward...
"My relationship with Chris is well documented. We are good mates, but we have a professional relationship as well which is seen by the results. It is great not to have the distractions now, and we can move the club forward."
