Sheikh Mansour completes City buyout

Manchester City's billionaire owner Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al-Nahyan on Wednesday completed a 100 per cent buyout of the English Premier League club.
Through the Abu Dhabi United Group for Development and Investment, Sheikh Mansour gained control of the club from disgraced former Thailand Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra last summer.
Shinawatra had kept a 10 per cent stake but now City have confirmed Mansour has gained control of that as well, giving him unquestioned control.
"As a result of the transaction, Manchester City is now 100 per cent owned by his highness Sheikh Mansour," said a club statement.
