The group is a wealthy petrol distributor but has a big interest in sport and controls all the Formula 1 power boat racing in China and is a trusted partner of the government - something which will aid PCG, he says.
The firm has signed an MoU with Shenzhen Tianrong Sports Culture Management Co on a venture to build a “major” football academy in the country.
"Sport is an enormous deal in China at the moment," he said.
The government have set some targets for sport to deliver in effect 1% of GDP (gross domestic product) by 2025.
Initially PCG will operate on a retainer fee in the football project, but longer term, will take an equity stake.
