Sheikh Mansour assiste à la finale de la Ligue des champions. Mais cela montre-t-il à quel point il se soucie ?


Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the owner of Manchester City, has been absent from the club’s games for nearly 13 years. However, he will be present at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul for the Champions League final against Inter Milan. The sheikh’s absence has led to speculation about his emotional investment in the club, with some suggesting that his reasons for buying the club were not about having a passion for football. However, others argue that the sheikh’s presence could work against City’s PR, and that his absence has not affected the club’s success.

Despite not attending City’s games, the sheikh is estimated to have a personal fortune of £16.8 billion ($20.9bn) and is involved in a vast portfolio of political and economic responsibilities. He has never seen the vast training complex that his money bought across the road from the Etihad Stadium, nor has he attended any of the title showdowns that have defined the club’s modern history. However, City’s fans remain grateful to the sheikh for his investment in the club, and his name is still emblazoned across the back of many fans’ shirts.

City’s trophy count under the sheikh stands at seven Premier League titles, three FA Cups, and six League Cups. Despite facing disciplinary charges for breaking the Premier League’s financial rules, City remains confident of defending themselves against the allegations and continuing to challenge for titles. While the sheikh’s absence from City’s games may be unusual, it has not affected the club’s success, and his presence at the Champions League final is a sign of his commitment to the club’s future.
