It's ridiculous. If you own a football club then that should be it. You're only allowed to own one. It's farcical you can own or have interests in lots. I know ENIC were one of the first to do it but nothing has changed since then. It just seems a bit wrong.

I don't know how much UEFA can do about it though.

UEFA already have the rule that states an owner cannot own two clubs that both play in European competitions. Lot of hoopla with RB Leipzig and RB Salzburg both making CL this year but I can't remember how Red Bull got around it. Very little UEFA can do.

Yeah I'm aware of that rule but there's nothing, as far as I know, that means they can't own two different clubs as long as they don't compete in the same competition. Not sure it would be legal for UEFA to stop it. Don't business owners etc. have various rights that it would go against etc.?
