Arsene Wenger has already cemented a legacy with us that will stand the test of time, revolutionising our club into one of the greatest in Europe over the past twenty years, so it is no surprise that he is currently one of the wealthiest sporting figures in Britain.
According to the Sunday Times Rich List, which was reported in The Sun, the Frenchman can boast a fortune of £38m – only slightly more than the fee we spent on Alexis Sanchez last summer – which ties him for tenth spot alongside Manchester United’s assistant manager Ryan Giggs, and golfers Rory McIlroy and Sir Nick Faldo.
His counterpart in the opposition dugout for Sunday’s Premier League clash, and long time rival, Jose Mourinho is the only other football manager on the list. The Chelsea boss’ £40m wealth places him one place and £1m ahead of Frank Lampard.
Rio Ferdinand, Steven Gerrard, and Wayne Rooney are the other footballers on the list, with the latter the only representative in the top four. The Manchester United striker is ahead of Jenson Button and Andy Murray – who are in 3rd and 4th respectively – but behind Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton, who is worth an eye-watering £88m.
