The Premier League rich list – where does Mike Ashley fit amongst the rich list of club owners?

Forbes published their yearly rich list and below are the financial worth of the prominent people in English football who either own Premier League clubs outright, or are major shareholders.

Figures weren’t published by Forbes for Sheikh Mansour or the Glazer family at the two Manchester clubs, but their figures are taken from figures published by the Express and backed up by estimates published elsewhere.

The position in the Forbes rich list of billionaires is in brackets  for the relevant five, and number one in that list incidentally is Bill Gates who is estimated to have a wealth of $79.2bn – enough to buy up the top seven Premier League richest and have change afterwards.

$30.1 Sheikh Mansour (Manchester City)

$9.1 Roman Abramovich (Chelsea) (Forbes No.137)

$6.3 Stan Kroenke (Arsenal) (Forbes No.225)

    Worth more than the Glazers??!!
    Just ponder on that for awhile….. and then let the sheople give excuses as to why we’re light years away from their club.

    Because we’re a sports team not a business anyone running a sports team should have the overriding ambtion to be as successful as possible. Simple as that.

    Ok He doesn’t have to spend his own money just let Newcastle United be free of making money for SD
    Proper advertising from.a blue chip company a club shop where the money made goes back to Newcastle United
    This interest free loan wiped out
    The tv and gate money used to strengthen the squad
    Not having to sell our better players all the time but if we do all the money goes back into the squad
    A top top top quality coach that doesn’t just talk a good game
    He can keep his billions and Newcastle United can be way up there challenging

    Exactly. He and his minions always justified the redundancies and cuts by saying NUFC had to wipe its own nose. But then he doesn’t even allow that to happen. More lies from them.
