    Was just browsing wikipedia and noticed it says he was made "Honorary Knight Commander of The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire" in 2013.

    Can't see any media reports from that time but he is listed here (http://www.leighrayment.com/knights/knightshon.htm) along with a few other members of the Al Nahyan family.

    Anyway thought it was interesting but strange how it's seemingly gone under the radar. It does show the close links he has with the UK and can only be good for the club.

    Was it ever mentioned on here? Couldn't find anything from a search hence starting this thread.

    Not eligible.

    I think you have to be British or a member of the Commonwealth...

    Yep. Similar to Geldof's gong for his band aid/live aid work.

    Doesn’t fit with the human rights abusing Arab twat narrative so it never made the press

    Mansour's brother was a special advisor on M.E. affairs to Cameron PM. Think links between AD and UK are deep.
