Queens Park Rangers co-owner Lakshmi Mittal is once again the richest man in football according to new research.

The FourFourTwo rich list puts the Indian steel-magnate ahead of Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al Nahyan.

Mittal is worth an estimated 18.4bn, while Sheikh Mansour has a fortune of 17bn behind the R's steel tycoon.

Despite the brother of the ruler of Abu Dhabi increasing his funds by 2bn since January, the slump in the stock market has subsided, helping the R's co-owner and his company ArcelorMittal increase their fortune by 6bn.

Despite being 800m better off than last year Roman Abramovich is in third place with a fortune of 7.8bn.

Bernie Ecclestone, who is Mittal's co-owner at Queens Park Rangers occupies eighth place, worth a total of 1.466billion.

although technically correct, mansours wealth is well beyond 17 billion, his oil holdings on their own are worth over a trillion! His family wealth is said to be nearer 500 billion, his personal estate as a ruling family in abi dhabi and emirates, he is realistically worth beyond 50 billion

Still though, it's a nice sound-bite for us ;-)

Any rich list is subjective but at least we know we have (at this stage) three wealthy men backing us
