Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs, has congratulated Manchester City on winning their third Premier League title in four seasons.
City won the title by the virtue of Manchester United’s loss to Leicester City on Tuesday. City have an unassailable lead of 10 points with just three round remaining.

This is City’s fifth title in ten years under the ownership of Sheikh Mansour. He took to twitter to congratulate newly-crowned champions.

“I also thank the management, players, team coach and all the club's staff for winning the Premier League, wishing that this wonderful achievement will be a catalyst for more titles.” City exuded a brilliant run of form after a lukewarm start to the season, which put them on the top of the standings.
City, who were chasing treble, have already ticked two boxes by winning Premier League and fourth consecutive League Cup titles with an all-English Champions League final slated to be held on May 29.
