Fawaz, Abdulaziz and Omar Al-Hasawi have agreed to acquire the controlling stake from the estate of late owner Nigel Doughty state.

The family, who made its fortune in the refrigeration and air-conditioning business, assured that they will do their best efforts to bring the Reds back to the top of the table.
