LE SCAN SPORT – For some of their trips, the players of the Saudi club Al-Hilal borrow a luxuriously refurbished Boeing from top to bottom.
InSaudi Arabia, Saudi Pro League players are, at the very least, well off. At the Al-Hilal club, the players use a Boeing 747-400 for their trips outside. Odion Ighalo, the club’s Nigerian goalscorer, recently posted a video of about a minute that shows some parts of the plane.
Inside this plane, which initially accommodates 400 pengers, lounges, dining rooms and other private lounges follow one another. Gear value? 200 million euros, according to estimates. The plane is owned by Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal. Billionaire and supporter of Al-Hilal, he sold the Boeing 747-400 to the club. He bought himself an A380, to replace it.
