Man City owner top of rich list
Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan has toppled Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich from the top of British football's rich list.

The Sheikh, 38, estimated to be worth £15bn, took over at City in September, while Abramovich has dropped to £7bn.

Abramovich, 42, is third on the list - published by FourFour Two magazine - behind Lakshmi Mittal (£12.5bn), who bought a 20% stake in QPR in 2007.

David Beckham's lucrative deals have kept him on top of the players' list.

The Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder, who is currently on loan at AC Milan during the Major League Soccer close season, has a personal fortune believed to be worth a massive £85m more than Michael Owen, who is second on the players' list with £40m.

Abramovich has reportedly lost over £3bn during the economic downturn but England manager Fabio Capello, 62, is a new entry and, with the Italian on a £6m-a-year contract and with a £10m art collection, is thought to be worth £25m.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson appears in the list at number 78 on £22m, while Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is ranked 92nd, with a fortune of £14m.

The top 20 from the top 100 in the FourFour Two football rich list are:

1. Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nayan - Manchester City - £15bn

Aren't Bernie and Slavica getting divorced? I heard it is a huge settlement so might knock him down a bit.
