Twitter: Mallorca, of Spain’s 2nd division has a new American owner. Robert Sarver of the Phoenix Suns along with Steve Nash have bought the club (@AndresCantorGOL)
It is being reported by Andres Cantor that former NBA star Steve Nash has purchased Spanish Liga Adelante club RCD Mallorca. Nash has become a businessman since leaving the NBA and this is his latest venture. He has purchased the team alongside American Robert Sarver who owns the Phoenix Suns and tried to buy Glasgow Rangers in 2015.
Mallorca are perhaps most famous for being the club who made Samuel Eto’o into a European star. Since then however, the club has fallen into rough times and they now lie in the Spanish second tier as a mid table club. Nash and Sarver now own a controlling stake and they will make many of the footballing decisions for the Mediterranean club.
Nash is yet to comment on his latest venture but he is a well-known football fan and he supports Tottenham Hotspur. It is good to see the former Suns and Mavericks star keeping himself busy.
