Koukash expected to stay on at Salford

Marwan Koukash says he expects to stay on as Salford owner following their Super League survival.

A dramatic late drop goal from Gareth O'Brien saw the Red Devils win Saturday's Million Pound Game to secure their place in the top flight for 2017 and relegate Hull KR.

Their on-field issues had led Koukash to suggest he would consider his future at the club should they be relegated, having invested millions into the team since taking over in 2013.

However, the 57-year-old Jordanian says he is now set to remain in control and has turned his attentions to ensuring the Red Devils do not find themselves in a similar situation next year.

"My gut feeling this morning is that I would like to stay, I'd like to give it one more go," Koukash said.

"I think there is some potential there. I think what took place yesterday gave the club a huge lift and we have undoubtedly a talented group of boys and with the addition of two or three players we could go places.

"If we could get it right off the field, in terms of marketing and attracting more people to come to the ground, we'll be fine. That is the challenge we will face over the next two months."
