City Supremo Pens Open Letter To The Fans



You won't find our Malcolm in Miami or numerous other big investors going down this route. His Highness Sheikh Mansour has written an open letter to us...

At the same time, The Citizens hierarchy have published an annual report. The link to which you'll find below the letter published on th'official site this morning.

We've come from playing the likes of Macclesfield, Wycombe and Gillingham to playing Juventus inside 11 years and generations of Blues are daring to dream.

Unprecedented gestures like this continue to cement the growing bond between the club and it's supporters.

'Dear Fellow City Fans,

Two years ago I was fortunate enough to become part of the Manchester City story and I remain grateful for the warmth of the welcome that you have given me.

The ownership of a Club like Manchester City, with such a rich heritage and diverse community of stakeholders, carries a unique set of obligations to the fans, staff and broader Manchester community. This is something I do not take lightly.

Therefore the challenge I set my Board and Executive Leadership Team is to develop City so that it is one of the most successful clubs both on and off the pitch, but to do so without losing any of the characteristics that make it so special.

It has been an exciting and busy two years and that is why we are publishing this annual report. It is designed for you the fans, providing a detailed perspective on the progress of your club as a business, as a member of the community and of course as a great sporting institution.

Two years ago I promised that we would try and listen to your views and keep you informed of progress. I hope after reading the report that you feel a sense of pride in just how far we have come.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the fans, staff and partners of the Club for their ongoing commitment and dedication, and wish the management and players a successful season for 2010-11.

Mansour bin Zayed'

I am glad Mansour made it to a game where City showed him that he was not wasting his money.lol

I have been a City supporter for over 65 years. Age is catching up now and I am only able to be an armchair fan, but the fire burns just as fiercely in my City soul. I can honestly say that Sheikh Mansour is the best thing that ever happened to our great club.
