Their success seems more organic and it is not connected to such horrid regimes
A couple of points to look at on this, one being the way in which King Power was able to get the monopoly on duty free concessions in the country and two being the way in which the Thai royal family treats people (offence of lèse-majesté) & the number of military coups in the country in the last few decades.
Not as serious as some of the other club owners on our list but I’m not sure they’re the good guys either.
That said, it’s clear the club punches above its weight on the pitch, helped by having a really under-rated manager (although not under-rated by himself!)
That’s true and I am less familiar with Thai politics than Russia, Saudi Arabia or the Gulf States like UAE or Qatar. I was aware of Thailand’s regressive monarchical powers and laws, but I was unsure over the Leicester owners proximity to it as I was with Abramovich the oligarch of Russia or the strong links to the UAE from the sheikhs who own Man City, and PSG, which is owned by the ruler of Qatar.
