Gulf Investors Eager To Invest
Oil rich countries such as Saudi Arabia and Kuwait are eager to invest in Manchester City FC, Garry Cook, the clubs executive chairman has revealed.
With the current so-called cash flow crisis surrounding club owner Thaksin Shinawatra, something has to be done to ease the pressure.
Garry Cook told The Independent on Saturday that the club had received calls from the Gulf region inquiring whether the club was up for sale. He said he was confident investors would be in place, 'within the next 10 days.'
'He (Thaksin) has some very wealthy friends,' added Cook. 'I was in Beijing last week, sitting with the owner and the second richest man in China and other guys.'
'They all want to be part of Manchester City. I've had representatives of companies from Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait on.
'Some of those representatives have actually phoned the supporters' club because they couldn't find the club number. So I get the supporters' club secretary saying to me, 'So the club is for sale, then, because I've got Anwar on the phone from Saudi Arabia?''
The next 10 days should be an interesting time for everyone concerned, including City fans.

How dare anyone say Manchester City are buying success? To be honest I'm sick to death hearing about it. It irritates the hell out of me, especially when we all know it's not true.
