Partey, who plies his trade for Atletico Madrid in the Spanish La Liga, is said to have silently acquired a stake in the club with the sole purpose of getting them promoted to the top leagues.

The 26-year-old, who formed part of the Black Stars side that took part in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, is already looking post-football as he has observed several African footballers in Europe struggling because of their inability to plan when they retire from playing.

“I have joined three of the 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 stated.

“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,” he added.
