Abu Dhabi's strategy

The Financial Times has a major article on Abu Dhabi this morning. It is centred around the City Football Group, owners of Manchester City, but there a few insights that might be relevant to Charlton under its new owners.

The Pink 'Un notes that Abu Dhabi is the capital of the UAE and the wealthiest of the emirates. One of the drivers for Abu Dhabi is to maintain its image in contrast to brasher Dubai.

It also notes that the emirate has particularly close links with China and Singapore.

There is a mandate to channel oil wealth into international investments, not least in sport and taking a long-term view.
