Adviser: Shinawatra at Man City for long haul

Noppadol Pattama said: “Dr Thaksin will be at Manchester City for a long time. Five years or even longer.

“It is not a quick investment and he is not trying to make a quick buck.

“I am sure he will be there for a reasonable period of time because he wants to be able to take Manchester City to the top of the Premier League in the very near future.”
