Four players from Manchester City's league title-winning side have been doing their bit to promote tourism in the Middle East.

The club is, of course, owned by Sheikh Mansour, a member of the Abu Dhabi ruling family, and he has used his influenced to get some of the world's biggest stars to the beaches of Abu Dhabi.

Jesus Navas, Fernandinho, Alvaro Negredo and Aleks Kolarov were the four players charged with heading to Abu Dhabi, where they performed some skills on the beaches of the emirate.

What's more, the entire City team will soon play Al Ain FC, the most successful club in United Arab Emirates’ footballing history.

The event is designed to mark the opening of the new Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium, which will add to the emirates' impressive list of attractions.

It is hoped, too, that the presence of the team will lead to a spike in visitor numbers.ADNFCR-408-ID-801720315-ADNFCR
