Manchester City owner attends first match in 13 years in Champions League final

Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour will attend the Champions League final on Saturday night.

Club sources have confirmed to the PA news agency that the sheikh will be present in Istanbul when City take on Inter Milan to win Europe’s top club award for the first time.

It will be only the second game he has attended since his investment vehicle, Abu Dhabi United Group, bought City in 2008.

President Khaldoon Al Mubarak was also due to be at the main match at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium.

City have become the dominant force in English football under Mansour, with the club winning seven Premier League titles in the last 12 years and five of the last six.

Victory in Turkey on Saturday would also make them the second English team to win the treble after having retained their national title and won the FA Cup.

City now also sits at the heart of a global network of 13 clubs known as City Football Group.
