The 2010/11 Football Rich List

7 Oct

Four Four Two has released its annual “Football Rich List” ranking the wealthiest players, managers, and owners in England.

Not surprising, the top of the list has Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s name all over it. The Manchester City owner, with an estimated worth of £20bn, has brought in a new age of foreign ownership to the English Premier League and will undoubtedly ruin the sport as we know it (but that’s a discussion for another day).

Today we celebrate the oil barons, oligarchs, steel magnates, industrialists, stock market kings, marketing magnates, mommy and daddy’s lucky boy, adulterers, cheapskates, profit mongers, and any other term you wish to label football’s rich and famous.

Before reading on, Four Four Two was kind enough to explain how they go about compiling these lists so they are as accurate as possible. Clearly we would be furious if they were £1bn off.

So without further ado, here are the top ten richest owners, managers, and players for 2010/11:

1. Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan – Manchester City – Age 40 – £20bn (Last year £17bn, 2nd)
