On Monday, Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum posted a picture of him alongside other officials cutting into a cake to celebrate Manchester City’s 2-0 victory over West Ham United.

Manchester City’s win was great news for the UAE, since the football club was bought by Deputy Prime Minister Sheikh Mansour in 2008 in a high-profile takeover.
