Khaldoon Al Mubarak Best President
The five triumphs of the year alone would justify the selection of the pivotal figure behind Manchester City’s meteoric rise, but Khaldoon Al Mubarak’s contributions extend beyond this. They hark back to the inception of the venture, the gamble on football that his group decisively won, challenging the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona in Spain with Girona, and hinting at future ambitions in Italy, potentially taking on Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan through Palermo. As the Arab world takes centre stage in the future of football, it’s only fitting to acknowledge the trailblazer who set the course. Al-Mubarak has proven, through hard numbers, that he can boost revenues for Manchester City. Having already clinched every possible title, he has expressed his intention to work towards enhancing the organisation of football. As we approach the inaugural World Club Championship in 2025, there’s little doubt about who will be vying for the victory.
