Mehrdad Ghodoussi drops huge Newcastle United hint over future friendly at St James's Park
Braces in either half from Joelinton and Miguel Almiron wrapped up by a late goal by young forward Dylan Stephenson saw Newcastle claim a comfortable win against the Saudi Pro League champions in Riyadh. Ghodoussi, Amanda Staveley, Jamie Reuben and chairman Yasir Al-Rumayyan were in attendance at the Prince Faisal bin Fahd Stadium.
And at half-time, Al Hilal president Fahd bin Saad bin Nafel handed ‘souvenirs’ to the Newcastle co-owners which included two Al Hilal shirts with ‘Amanda’ and ‘Mehrdad’ printed on the back.
Following the match, Ghodoussi tweeted Al Hilal with a thank you message and a suggestion at a future friendly match at St James’s Park.
“Thank you for welcoming us so warmly and being such gracious hosts,” he wrote. “We look forward to hosting you in Newcastle soon.”
