Anyone who knows Dubai knows it is flush with cash virtually like no other place on the planet at the moment. A lot of Korean companies have won massive construction contracts there. And a lot of people are throwing money at sport - traditionally racing and cricket but now football with a Dubai based entity looking at Liverpool (if they can ever get over their current ownership saga).

For someone like Pala - getting a following in somewhere like Dubai could be a real path to making things happen and picking up good money. If he could generate an identity as someone who had some kind of ongoing connection to Dubai this could be a good thing.
