Makes sense. If he can help us with the materials to build a new stadium, maybe offer to sponsor the arena for x number of years which can be borrowed against, offer his contacts for Moshiri to leverage off. He can assist his friend financially without officially ploughing money into the club. Either way it's good for us.
Part of me maybe thinks that is what's happening now anyway.
Moshiri was quoted as saying, I believe, something along the lines of "as long as I am involved here money will never be an issue". I think Usmanov is writing the guy cheques left, right and centre.
As long as Moshiri is involved here then so will Usmanov, in some capacity, even if it isn't having a direct seat on the board.
This is evident with his company already sponsoring the training ground.
