Boston Celtics All-Star forward
Kevin Garnett is investing in American-owned Italian football club
AS Roma, Boston media reported on Friday.
Garnett, an avid football fan, would hold a minor stake in the
the Italian Serie A club, the Boston Globe said on its website.
His participation is subject to approval by the National
Basketball Association and would be similar to a deal the Miami
Heat's LeBron James has with English Premier League club Liverpool, the
Garnett is close to prominent international players such as
Didier Drogba of Chelsea, and plays the game as part of his
off-season conditioning program, the Globe said.
AS Roma were recently purchased by an American group that
includes Boston Red Sox partner Thomas DiBenedetto and James
Pallotta, a Boston Celtics co-owner.
