PHOTOS: Thomas Partey Has Bought A Football Club In Spain

Ghana midfielder Thomas Partey has purchased Alcobendas Sport, a small football club based in Madrid that plays in Spain’s lower leagues.

The Atletico Madrid star teamed up with three of his advisers to seal the complete takeover of the club. The four partners bought the club in July and they all have an equal share in the club.

The acquisition of the team is the first business move by the 26-year-old, who is clearly planning for life after retirement.

“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,” Partey told Ghanasoccernet.

“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.”

Alcobendas Sport, founded in 1995, currently plays in the Spanish fourth-tier league. They first reached the fourth division in 2006–07, finishing in the fourteenth position.

Changing its name to Soto Alcobendas Club de Fútbol in 2006, the team was again renamed the following year, to Alcobendas Sport, with the intention to cover the entire city.

They play their home games at the Polideportivo Luis Aragonés, which has a seating capacity of 3,000.
