Abramovich leads Jewish football rich list

    Three of football’s wealthiest people are Jewish, according to new research.

    With an estimated fortune of £7.8bn, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, 42, heads the Jewish delegation, retaining third position in the 2009 FourFourTwo.com Rich List.

    Trailing Lakshmi Mittal (£18.4bn) and Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan (£17bn), the father-of-five has reportedly made more than £600m in the past 12 months.

    But the economic downturn has seen huge losses to even the biggest fortunes.

    Spurs owner Joe Lewis, the Bahamas-based financier, (£2.5bn) is fourth despite losing nearly £500m on his investment in failed Wall Street bank Bear Stearns. Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy (£25m) is 82nd.

    Manchester United’s Glazer family climb three places into seventh with an estimated £1.5bn.

    Pentland Group owner Stephen Rubin, aged 71, comes in at No. 24 with £360m to his name.

    Former bricklayer, Birmingham City chairman David Gold (£300m) has dropped seven places to 27.

    At No. 30, dropping a place, is Arsenal director and diamond dealer Danny Fiszman (£225m).

    Tony Bloom, the chairman of Brighton & Hove Albion, is a new entry. With £50m to his name, Bloom, 39, has injected £80m to fund the new Falmer stadium.
