🧵It seems many overlook some of the problems and conflict of interest when football clubs transform into state-owned prestige projects, possibly due to their emotional attachment to the sport and specific clubs. Here, I provide three clear examples: #ManCity, #PSG & #NUFC. 1/5

🧵The sponsors of Manchester City

Okay, so I tried to look into some of the sponsors of #ManCity – the state-run project from #AbuDhabi.

It’s long but I hope it is worth it.
First and foremost, it is worth mentioning that #ManCity is part of City Football Group (CFG), established in 2013. From 2008-2015, CFG was wholly owned by ADUG, a private investment and development company belonging to Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
Today, CFG is majority owned by Newton Investment and Development LLC, which is owned by Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and with a significant minority shareholding held by global technology investment firm, Sliver Lake (18.16%)

#ManCity won the #PremierLeague. Now aiming for the FA Cup!

Here’s a thread about the club that has won five PL titles in six years - a state-owned project from #AbuDhabi and a club that's charged with 115 instances of rule breaches❗️ Might be worth for the media to tell today❓
I highly recommend @sportingintel’s brilliant recap at #ptg2022 on a decade of #ManCity's skullduggery and succes👇Also @james_corbett, @katpijetlovic. @PhilippeAuclair ends with a shocking view on football and unregulated/illegal sources of financing

Just gone midnight (UK time) and the weekend already.

I'm starting the daily thread covering #Russia's war earlier than usual as there are attacks taking place right now on #Ukraine

It's Day 178 of the full invasion of its peaceful neighbour

Right now ALL of #Ukraine is experiencing air raid warnings, but not everything is the same as usual.

A few minutes ago, at the end of yesterday's thread, I reported on explosions in occupied #Melitopol, but plenty of missiles being fired from #Russia into free Ukraine...
However, it seems as though #Russia's OWN air defences have taken out some of their own missiles leaving #Belgorod!

Difficult to confirm this, but looking at confirmed radar reports of missiles being fired from Russian territory, towards east #Ukraine this does seem very likely.

BREAKING: #UAE President #KhalifabinZayed just died. Crown Prince of #AbuDhabi since 1969, and Abu Dhabi Ruler & President since his father Sheikh Zayed died in 2004. The #BurjKhalifa was initially named to honor him.

A few words on him + what happens now in a thread. 1/
After #KhalifabinZayed suffered a stroke in 2014, his younger brother Mohammad bin Zayed (#MbZ) became de facto leader of the #UAE. Now the Federal Supreme Council (including the rulers of the 7 Emirates) will ratify #MbZ as official President of the #UAE. Basically guaranteed 2/
The more interesting thing is who will be appointed #UAE Crown Prince. Options include #MbZ’s brother & #security czar #TahnoonBinZayed, another brother, or #MbZ’s son #KhalidBinZayed.

While #SaudiArabia moved to primogeniturial succession, the #UAE might do the opposite. 3/

Pre (left image) and post/during (right image) shows an explosion (one of two?) in #AbuDhabi, #UAE. Considering there appears to be a blaze behind windows that look intact I am extremely dubious of any report of rockets/drones etc. right now, looks like an internal incident.
not the first, wont be the last. We’ve seen similar incidents in Iran and social media adding it’s “twists”.

#AbuDhabi under attack. Air defenses were active earlier.

From SnapMap:…
Air traffic in holds or diverting from #AbuDhabi Intl. Airport at this time:

In the photo above, any departures would appear green. There are departures from #AbuDhabi but are outside the frame above, and got out before or as the attacks happened.

Update #Yemen .
Die #Houthis und die Saudi-Koalition lieferten sich einen schweren Schlagabtausch.
Die Huthis attackierten Anfang der Woche Tanklastenwagen und Depos im Industriegebiet von #AbuDhabi , Hauptstadt der VAE.
Starke Feuer brachen aus, mind. 3 Menschen starben
Im Gegenzug flog die Saudi-Koalition (der die VAE auch angehören) schwere Luftangriffe auf die Hauptstadt vom #Yemen #Sanaa .
Laut dpa wurden mindestens 12 Menschen getötet.
Angeblich sollen bei den Luftangriffen auch Krankenwagen und Rettungskräfte attackiert worden sein.
Bemerkenswert ist jedes Mal, wie wenig die Flugabwehr der Saudi-Koalition gegen die primitiven Drohnen und Raketen der #Houthis unternehmen kann.
Solche Angriffe auf die Infrastruktur der Saudi-Koalition passieren mittlerweile fast schon routinemäßig👇

#Iran-backed #Houthi militia is now involved in at least two attacks resulting in injuries+death of #Pakistan citizens in #KSA+#UAE. In May 2021, Houthis targeted #Jeddah within hours of the arrival of PM #ImranKhan+First Lady [see: ] /1
Apart from killing a #Pakistan citizen, the #Houthi attack on @AdnocGroup facility targets an energy partner of six largest Pakistani oil & gas companies [See ]

[ADNOC statement ]
#Pakistan has so far avoided directly criticizing #Iran-backed proxies in the region in order to avoid altercations with #Tehran and its feared #IRGC/QF paramilitaries. But now #Houthis increasingly pose a direct threat to Pak interests in the #Gulf. /3

#Iran-backed #Houthi attack in #AbuDhabi comes days after #UAE NSA met Iranian NSA in #Tehran. Meeting appeared cordial in pictures [see ].

Earlier, Iran issued inflammatory statements on UAE-#Israel bilateral exchanges [see ]
The #AbuDhabi attack would mark an escalation in the activities of #Iran-backed militias around the #Gulf region. The first days of the year have seen an escalation in #Iraq against the Iraqi government and #US outposts. [See &
A #Pakistan citizen killed in alleged #Houthi attack on #UAE. If confirmed, this will not be the first time that actions of #Iran-backed militia resulted in Pakistani casualties. Iranian malign activity directly impacts vital Pakistani interests in #Gulf.

Le chef du #Mossad Yossi Cohen est à #AbuDhabi pour négocier l'accord de normalisation #Israel #Emirats.
Le Mossad oeuvre depuis des années au rapprochement avec le monde arabe en contournant le ministère des Affaires étrangères
#Israel incarne plus que tout autre pays le triomphe de la diplomatie du secret et de la diplomatie en uniforme. Son ministère des Affaires étrangères est indigent, les ministres qui s'y succèdent savent que le vrai pouvoir est ailleurs
#diplomatie #Emirats
Ecarté, le ministère des Affaires étrangères devient 1 gêneur quand la politique s'en mêle. Avertir le ministre Ashkenazi (BleuBlanc) de l'accord #Israel #Emirats? #Netanyahu n'y a jamais songé: "J'y travaille depuis des années, il sont là depuis 2 mois"…
