7. Andrea Radrizzani – Leeds United
Andrea Radrizzani has been nothing but a saviour for the club as well as the fans. He has helped change the goals of the team to an extent that you will definitely see Leeds United in English top-flight football for a long time. In 2018, he appointed Marcelo Bielsa which proved to be a masterstroke for the club. In the 2020-21 season, Leeds United finished 9th in the Premier League which shows how well they performed, considering it was their first season in a long time.
6. Matthew Benham – Brentford FC
The story is just brilliant here, things you absolutely love to see. Matthew Benham was a professional gambler who lent $700,000 to the club when they were facing a financial crisis. He has immense knowledge of analytical concepts and used it to change the style of play of Brentford. With his style of play, Brentford became a much effective team and eventually created history by qualifying for the top-tier in English football after 74 years.
5. Nassef Sawiri and Wes Edens – Aston Villa
Aston Villa have always been a side that spends money to get better players in the team. Their only goal is to move forward and with the way things are being run, they are closer to their goal. They are on their way to become one of the biggest clubs in the Premier League. They are 5th in our list of Premier League owners ranked from worst to best.
4. Guo Guangchang – Wolverhampton Wanderers
Wolverhampton Wanderers have always invested in their squad which is why they find themselves so far up the list. They had an unfortunate incident with Raul Jimenez last season, but with his return, Wolves would once again look to make it to the European competition this season.
3. Roman Abramovich – Chelsea
You might say that Roman Abramovich is buying success, especially with his participation in the ESL idea. However, you cannot deny everything he has done for the club. He saved them from bankruptcy, helped them retain their status as a top-tier club, won the Champions League, made regular signings, and eventually turned them into Premier League giants, especially during the difficult Covid-hit season. His lack of backing to his managers is something he could work on, but overall he is a great owner.
2. Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan – Manchester City
Manchester City are another club accused of buying their way to success, but that’s how the modern football is turning out to be. They have spent a lot of money on the club and that is evident by the number of trophies they win each year. Manchester City are currently one of the best teams in entire Europe and are among the favorites to win the UCL.
But City’s current owners have not just invested in the senior team but in all levels. They have created a world-class training centre, which is also used by the EDS team and the women’s team of the club. City’s youth teams are also getting stronger year after year, proving their metal of grassroots development.
1. The Srivaddhanaprabha family – Leicester City
Leicester City probably has the best owners in the Premier League which is blatant 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 promised to invest enough hem a top-five team within three years. Two years later, they were Premier League champions.
Each year they are top contenders to qualify for the Champions League, however, they somehow manage to lose their way at the back end of the season. They will be looking to change that this season. Hiring Brendan Rodgers was a masterstroke too. They also won the FA Cup last season.
