Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke has been ranked the 58th richest individual in the United States of America according to a special report from the Forbes Magazine.

According to Forbes, the 71-year-old made his money from Real Estate and Sports and is currently worth $8.5bn.

Stan Kroenke is, however, a long way from technology expert Jeff Bezos who’s the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Amazon.

Jeff Bezos is the richest man in America with an estimated personal fortune of $160bn.

Stan Kroenke recently became the outright owner of North London giants Arsenal in August after he made a $550m offer to buy out the shares of the club’s second majority shareholder Alisher Usmanov.

Arsenal are reportedly worth $2.3bn after the complete takeover from Stan Kroenke was completed.

His complete ownership of the Gunners has coincided with the club’s impressive winning run of nine games in all competitions under new manager Unai Emery.

The Spanish tactician signed a three-year in the summer as a replacement for Frenchman Arsene Wenger who ended his 22-year reign at the end of last season.

He started the season with successive league defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea before turning things around with the recent winning sequence of nine games.
