Simon Jordan says he lost a staggering £47 million while in charge of Crystal Palace.
Jordan was forced out after the South London club went into administration in late January.
It ended the flamboyant, perma-tanned businessman's expensive 10-year stint as Selhurst Park supremo.
He told The Sun: "There are two valuations of how much I've lost. My accountant will tell you I've lost £47m. But in pound notes I've probably lost closer to £35m.
"Do I regret losing that money? Of course I do. But it's done now."
The multi-millionaire mobile phone magnate became the Football League's youngest chairman when, at 32, he bought Palace in 2000.
The Eagles reached the Premier League in 2004 but were relegated after a season.
