The wife of Chelsea legend Michael Essien is now a club owner, as she reportedly bought a club in the third tier of the Italian League.

Akosua Puni Essien, the wife of former Chelsea midfielder and Ghanaian legend Michael Essien, has purchased Italian football club Como for £206,000 at auction.

As reported by the Associated Press (h/t the MailOnline), the acquisition does not include the club’s board, training ground or the brand. However, Essien’s purchase at the bankruptcy auction will see the club now known as FC Como.

In a statement on their website, Como suggested that the new owner is “honoured to be part of a club which has 110 years of history.”
