13. John W. Henry – Liverpool
John W. Henry is lucky to have survived for so long despite making too many mistakes. He is extremely lucky to have Jurgen Klopp as the manager of the team who has helped the team become one of the most formidable teams in Europe.
Despite having a star-studded team with the likes of Mohamed Salah, Trent Alexander Arnold, and Virgil Van Dijk, the team lacks the bench strength to dominate in case of any injury, which we have seen this season at times. Liverpool’s net spend is extremely low compared to their rivals and this is something very much disliked by Liverpool fans.
12. Steve Parish, Josh Harris and David Blitzer – Crystal Palace
Under the ownership of Steve Parish, Crystal Palace became a regular team in the Premier League. They have made a mark in English football, but the question still remains whether they are moving in the forward direction, or backward direction, or whether they are just stagnant. To become more lethal, Palace needs to spend some money and look for a place in European competitions.
11. Guo Guangchang – Wolverhampton Wanderers
Guangchang is the founder and co-chair of Fosun International, the group which completed a 2016 takeover of Wolverhampton Wanderers. They have always invested in their squad which is why they have had a fairly consistent team in the Premier League over the last few years.
10. Shahid Khan – Fulham
Pakistani-American billionaire businessman and sports tycoon, Shahid Khan purchased Fulham in 2013. He is currently the fifth richest owner in the Premier League. Under him, Fulham has been through three relegations and three promotions under eight managers in nine years. The club is doing well in the 2022-23 Premier League season.
9. Evangelos Marinakis – Nottingham Forest
Evangelos Marinakis is a Greek media tycoon and bought Nottingham Forest in 2017 given his keen interest in football. Five years on from its acquisition, Nottingham Forest has returned to the Premier League for the first time in 23 years. He pledged to provide the investment required for the club to sustain itself in the Premier League. He was true to his words as Nottingham Forest made 29 signings in the two transfer windows of the 2022-23 season.
8. The Srivaddhanaprabha family – Leicester City
Leicester City has one of the best owners in the Premier League which is supported by the fact that they invest money into the club, and care for the fans. After being promoted to the Premier League in 2014, they invested enough to create a Premier League winning team. They communicate well with the managers and fans of the club.
The appointment of Brendan Rodgers was a masterstroke too. The club also won their first-ever FA Cup in 2021 too. However, in the last couple of years, investment in the transfer market has gone down a lot, which has negatively impacted the team.
7. Todd Boehly – Chelsea
Chelsea were never shy to spend big bucks under previous owner Roman Abramovich and their new owners have continued the tradition. Chelsea have spent over £500m under Todd and are hopeful to come out of the struggle, which the team is currently facing. Todd Boehly is regularly seen watching Chelsea matches at Stamford Bridge, which is always a good sign from a new owner.
