City for Sale? English Press Begins to Speculate

The British media finally seemed to have caught on to the fact that Thaksin is in hot water in Thailand and that his position as City owner is consequently increasingly shaky. Two newspapers Wednesday discuss the possibility of Thaksin selling out. The Sun reports that Thaksin is looking for outside investors and open to selling the club if the right bid comes in. (The article is somehwhat hilarious as the writer gets a basic fact about Thai politics wrong–Thaksin is against the People’s Alliance for Democracy, not pulling its strings). The Daily Mail goes further and says that representatives of Thaksin have quietly approached potential buyers. Club officials say that Thaksin is open to further investors but has no plans to sell out.

The Daily Mail report is being picked up by the Thai media, and is currently the lead story on The Nation website.

Stay tuned.
