Michael Essien’s wife bought a third-division club at an auction.
Akosua Puni Essien bought Como for 237,000 euros.
The club is not in the best state. Como has been relegated from Serie B last season. They are now in the 7th place and will most likely battle in promotion playoffs to go back up.
The club’s official statement says: Akosua Puni Essien is honored to be part of a club which has 110 years of history.
The team will now be called FC Como.
Akosua’s husband Michael joined the Indonesian side Persib on a one-year deal with the option of an extension.
