Thomas Partey buys Spanish football club
Ghana’s Thomas Partey and three of his associates have acquired stakes in Spanish 3rd division side, Alcobendas Sport and have now become owners of the club.
The move was announced by Spanish portals on Tuesday after Partey was seen at the club’s Luis Aragones Stadium over the weekend.
“I have joined three of my advisers who are also my good friends for us to takeover Alcobendas Sport to make it one of the great clubs in Spain. It is an ambitious project but we have put together our plans of making it a success through a gradual process of growing Alcobendas Sport from the ground – up.” he revealed.
Partey has followed the lead of footballers who have decided to give back to the game by owning clubs and giving opportunities to other footballers.
The likes of David Beckham, Ronaldo of Brazil, and the former Man United players who own Salford are all active in the game as owners or people who administer football clubs.
For the people at the club, they are very appreciative of Partey’s decision to support the team and that feeling is expressed by the team’s coach, Javi Baños.
