London - Liverpool's new owners spent £7.5m for each Premier League point they picked up between last October's purchase of the club and the end of last season, a leading British soccer survey said on Wednesday.

The fourfourtwo.com annual football rich list said the Fenway Sports Group owned by John Henry had paid more than two million pounds more for each point than the world's richest club Manchester City had done since being taken over by Abu Dhabi investors in September 2008.

Liverpool's cash-strapped city rivals Everton, in contrast, spent £48 192.77 per point between Bill Kenwright buying the club in 2004 and the end of last term.

City owner Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan is again the richest person in English football, worth £20 billion, according to the list.

England's Fabio Capello is the richest manager with a personal wealth of £38 million compared to second-placed Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson with £27 million.

David Beckham remains the richest English player with an estate estimated at £135 million.
