Following the successful takeover yesterday new Salford Red Devils Director Andrew Rosler spoke to BBC Radio Manchester this morning.
Rosler alongside three other Directors took control of the Club yesterday from Dr Marwan Koukash and the new Director admits its been a busy period for himself and the new Board.
Rosler, speaking to BBC Radio Manchester, said: “It’s been a bit of a sleepless night as it has been for the last two or three months but probably a mixture of excitement and anxiety rolled into one as you can probably imagine.”
The Owner of Ideal Corporate Solutions Limited went on to talk about the Club returning to the community, the AJ Bell Stadium and the Salford RLFC Supporters’ Trust as well as also thanking Dr Marwan Koukash for his time as Owner of Salford Red Devils.
Rosler said: “I think what we’ve got now it’s a challenge not just for our Club but for the sport in general we’ve probably lost a lot of the community feeling towards the Club certainly since we left The Willows a few years ago.
“But this is now a community Club and I think any Salford fan with a glimmer of interest in the Club in fact anybody that lives, works, studies, plays in the City, listens to Joy Division we want to do all we can to make this Club the hub of the community and I think that will make a big difference.
“Every time you go nearly every day of the week the car park is full so it is generating revenues for the Stadium and the challenge is for us is to see whether we can get together a group to potentially launch a bid to take ownership of the Stadium.
“This is from the heart I’ve been a Season Ticket holder since any of the first team players were born I’ve been a fan since I was four or eight and I’ll be a fan forever.
“We have got a good business plan and we do want to engage significantly with the supporters there is a Salford RLFC independent Supporters’ Trust which we’d encourage all our fans to join.
“They will be the official voice of the fans there will be direct access to the Board and any affective change, complaints, ideas we will be looking to take those on board so it is all of our responsibility now to this Club finally a success.
“I’d like to place on record on behalf of all Salford fans our thanks to Marwan for coming in when he did four or five years ago and whilst he’ll have no active part in the running of the Club he and his family will continue to support the Club in any way they can so obviously we’ll be delighted to take advantage of that as and when.”
