Former French football player Thierry Henry will soon become one of the shareholders of the Italian second division Como.
The club is working to establish a strong project to return to Serie A, with ex-Chelsea footballer Denis Weiss as CEO, and former Arsenal, Chelsea, Barcelona and Monaco player Cesc Fabregas signed a two-year contract earlier this week.
The Italian media also announced that the 36-year-old former Spanish national team member Fabregas is one of the club’s shareholders.
Henry is expected to arrive in Como soon and announce that he is one of the shareholders of the Serie B club, it added.
Due to major financial problems, Como was relegated to Serie D in the 2017/2018 season, but returned to professional football in 2019. That year the club was bought by a consortium from Indonesia, led by billionaires Michael Hartono and Robert Buddy Hartono.
