Manchester City’s owner targets Messi and Maradona

Dr al-Fahim keen for more Argentinean influence at Eastlands

Diego Maradona and Lionel Messi

Not only is Dr Sulaiman al-Fahim responsible for rejuvenating the blue side of Manchester, but he is also a hilarious source of quotes. The Arabian businessman has already told us how he would love Cristiano Ronaldo to be part of a tour-de-force of international talent, and his latest whim is based around his love of all things Argentinean.

In an interview given to a Dubai-based press agency, Dr al-Fahim said he would like Lionel Messi to be the star attraction at Eastlands, with Diego Maradona’s expert guidance as club president:

“I do not know if Diego Maradona could be a good coach. What I think is that he should be president of a club, and have the right to choose and buy players.

“In Naples, he started from scratch and built a great club. He has the power to change a football team.”

It’s good to see Dr al-Fahim taking a keen interest in the club, but there’s probably more chance of Ashley Cole becoming Arsenal president than Maradona giving up his current job for an executive role at a mid-table outfit. Leo Messi, however, may be turned if enough wheelbarrows full of cash are paraded under his nose…

    This would be funny if it wasn’t so pathetic. Al-Fahim has absolutely nothing to do with Manchester City in any capacity whatsoever.
    Still , why let facts get in the way of an article ?
    You don’t usually so why start now.

    The author of this article is a stupid cunt. This fucker he is quoting is not the owner nor is he employed by the club you dumb fuck. I wish you fucking twat journalists would either aquaint themselves with some integrity or get cancer and fuck off to a corner and be in pain. Cunts.

    A nice and considered response there Blue Man. The reference to cancer right on the money there!

    Football is a game, let’s try and hold some perspective?

    Blue Man, this story is on the back page of this morning’s Sun (two days after this website reported it) and they call Al Fahim the “City owner”. You should probably go and abuse them too.

  • Blue Man // March 5, 2009 at 3:22 pm


    The Sun don’t publish my comments, the Cunts. The Sun has a real concentrate of Cunts. Lying Cunts. They wouldn’t spot integrity if it jumped up and flossed their teeth. Cunts.

  • Talljonny // March 5, 2009 at 4:24 pm

    All this is obviously causing you some distress Blue Man. I think maybe it would be best if you stopped reading it all…have a lie down and a cup of tea.
