Soccer has its fair share of interesting owners, ranging from the lovable… well, the likable… erm… Let’s start over.
Soccer certainly has owners. Each club has its own owner/ownership group, usually consisting of successful businesspeople capable of buying Lamborghinis with the loose currency they find in their sofas.
