Former Chelsea star Michael Essien's wife Akosua Puni Essien has purchased Italian football club Como for £206,000 at auction.The club were in Serie B as recently as last season:

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."

Como were in the top flight in 2002-03, although three back-to-back relegations plunged the club into a difficult financial position and subsequent bankruptcy. They re-entered the Italian football setup in 2005-06 in Serie D.
