Como declared bankruptcy in 2016, and they weren’t refounded until a new business took over management of the club in 2017.
The following year, they were demoted to the Serie D amateur division before being acquired by the London-based SENT Entertainment in April 2019.
They quickly hired former Chelsea midfielder Dennis Wise, who is now their administrator, and it is said that he was instrumental in persuading Cesc Fabregas to join.
Cesc Fabregas was once a fan favourite at Arsenal before forcing a move to boyhood club Barcelona. He played for Arsenal for eight years before moving to Spain..
At his unveiling, he said:
It is an honour and a pleasure to join Como 1907. I have been extremely fortunate that my career has allowed me to play at the most wonderful clubs. Como is no exception. After lengthy talks with Mirwan, Dennis and Charlie, they explained in detail one of the most exciting and ambitious projects in football.
This is why I am looking to build a long-term future here not just on the pitch but also off it too. I believed in the vision from the first moment and I have decided to invest personally to be part of the bigger picture
I cannot wait to get out on the pitch and play in front of the fans in such a beautiful setting. The tradition, infrastructure and desire that the owners have to take this club to the next level is inspiring. I cannot wait to start.
