Sheikh Mansour breaks silence

Published Add your comment

Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour has broken his silence and confirmed the Blues' number one target this season is to win the Premier League.

Since his takeover in 2008, the Abu Dhabi-based Sheikh has ploughed well over £1billion into the club. However, his public opinions on the project are virtually non-existent, with chairman Khaldoon al-Mubarak and former chief executive Garry Cook left to outline their vision for City's future.

That has changed in an interview with the Al Ittihad newspaper, however, and he said: "We must not forget that our main objective is to win the English Premier League and if we achieve that, then it will have an impact on the team and the club as a whole and will show we can achieve anything," he said.
