Michael Essien's wife has bought a third-division Italian soccer club at an auction.

Akosua Puni Essien, who is married to the former AC Milan, Chelsea and Real Madrid midfielder, bought Como for 237,000 euros ($254,000).

The price does not include the training center or the Calcio Como brand, and the team will now be known as FC Como.

A club statement says Puni Essien will return to Como soon and that she is "honored to be part of a club which has 110 years of history."

Como was relegated from Serie B last season. It is currently in seventh place and on course for the promotion playoffs.
