Make of that what you will.
If I've followed the story correctly (I've not fact checked everything as I would be with Bolton for instance) Papadopaulo is the brother of Cristo, the bloke who failed the EFL's Fit and Proper test.
Although Papadopaulo passed he's seen to be too closely associated with his brother to continue in the process and apparently (according to Nixon) has sold his shares to another Spaniard called Moreno who apparently is very wealthy and the one who wanted the club all along - although it begs the question why as he ever been involved with the Cristo brothers in the first place and why he didn't put this extra £1m in if he could easily afford to do?
I assume therefore the real estate company who now is the major shareholder of the company AFC Wigan belongs to Moreno?
Papadopaulo and the woman who is his brothers accountant have both resigned as Directors of the company and replaced by Andrew James Clilvered who apparently was some sort of 'agent' I use the term loosely as I don't real understand what is role in all this is.
However it's been mentioned that this Clilvered attempted to fix up a sale with Moreno (I think?) to buy the club BEFORE the Hong Kong bloke did and has done the same again with the Cristo brothers, with Moreno staying in the background - as someone (I thought?) to be the moneyman - a bit like Anderson to Holdsworth if you will - although I don't know if that is an accurate description of their roles in this?
Anyway something doesn't ring true to me but for now anyway it seems Moreno is favourite to buy the club.
