thumbnail Hello,

The England veteran is still his nations' wealthiest footballer by a huge margin.

David Beckham has been named as England's richest footballer, according to to FourFourTwo magazine's 'Rich List'.

The Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder enjoys a personal fortune of £125 million, dwarfing the wealth of his nearest rival, Michael Owen. Owen is reportedly worth £38 million.

Owen's Manchester United colleague Wayne Rooney (£37m) comes next, with another two United stars, Rio Ferdinand (£30m) and Ryan Giggs (£24m), completing the top five.

England boss Fabio Capello is the wealthiest manager, with a fortune of £30m. Ipswich Town boss Roy Keane (£27m) and Alex Ferguson (£22m) are second and third.

As far as owners are concerned, Queens Park Rangers shareholder Lakshmi Mittal is the wealthiest man in English football. The steel magnate boasts a fortune reportedly worth £18.4 billion.

Mittal is ahead of Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al Nahyan (£17 billion) and Chelsea's Roman Abramovich (£7.8 billion).

The Glazer family, owners of Manchester United, are down in seventh place with a paltry £1.75 billion.
