Reporter claims Sheikh Jassim plays 5-aside in a Manchester United shirt

Reporters are fully aware that a lot of the stuff that gets briefed during the Manchester United bidding process will be completely fictional. Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad Al Thani seems keen for people to know very little about him, except for the idea he’s a Manchester United fan.

Sheikh Jassim may well be a Red. I don’t know – but I have my doubts about state-ownership – and we all know what Qatar’s intentions are behind potentially buying Manchester United.

Well respected journalist at The Athletic, Adam Crafton, appeared on BBC Sounds to discuss Sheikh Jassim.

Crafton claims Sheikh Jassim wears a Manchester United shirt when playing 5-aside.

“He plays five-a-side in a Manchester United shirt,” Crafton says.

Is he Michael Knighton is disguise?
