George Clooney buys Italian Soccer Club

[q]Actor to pay around $25M for club

ESPN.com news services

Hollywood actor George Clooney reportedly is set to buy Italian Serie B soccer team Como for approximately $25 million, Britain's ITV.com reported Monday.

According to the report, the former ER and Ocean's Eleven star has told friends he is "about to buy a small soccer team" near his Italian lakeside home in Villa Oleandra.

A Como supporter told ITV that "Someone saw George at the ground last week. Buying (the team) would make sense -- he only lives 20 minutes up the road. He has money for extra players and would attract female fans, bringing in extra gate money."

"I have seen all the reports and I hope Clooney does buy the club," a club receptionist added. "He's gorgeous."

Como spent last year in Italy's prestigious Serie A, but was relegated back to the country's second division after finishing second-to-last with a 4-18-12 record and 24 points. [/q]

Como, as I recall, was shite.

But nice location by the Lake, definitely.
