Sir Bobby Charlton was in Abu Dhabi this week for the Laureus Sports Awards. He was asked about Manchester City owner, Sheikh Mansour, who he recently met, and Sir Bobby claims that he was more interested in talking about the reds than the blues.

“This [Abu Dhabi] is not the home of Manchester City,” said Charlton. “I once had the pleasure of speaking with Sheikh Mansour because I had to bring back the trophy after we won the Club World Cup and Manchester City were playing the national team here. I was sitting next to him and I am sure he talked to me more about United than City.”
