City Cuts Last Thai With Thaksin Shinawatra
Google language translator
Manchester City Football Club has dismissed Thaksin Shinawatra from his position as the clubs honorary president.
According to the Guardian, ADUG took the decision after high-level talks took place last week in an effort to distance themselves from the ex-Thailand president's predicament.
The Guardian reads...
The new owner, Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and the chairman, Khaldoon Al Mubarak, concluded that it would be 'inappropriate' to allow Thaksin to continue holding such a prominent position and that the former prime minister of Thailand should become the first high-profile casualty of their reign.
Thaksin, who accepted the position when he sold the club to ADUG last September, has been on the run, spending time in the Middle East, China and the Bahamas, since his UK visa was cancelled in November.
His current whereabouts are a mystery to City but the club's executive chairman, Garry Cook, managed to get a message to the 59-year-old, via intermediaries, before the 1-0 defeat of Middlesbrough on Saturday. Thaksin's name was subsequently removed from the match-day programme and has also been taken off the club's website as well as various places inside the stadium.
