The club, based in a popular lake destination in the North of Italy not far from Milan, did not disclose Henry’s stake.
“It is with great pleasure that I announce that I will join Como 1907 as a shareholder. I have been waiting for a long time to be involved in a project like the one at Como,” the former France forward said in a statement.
“An ambitious club, but most importantly a club that lives according to the same values as me: not only as a football team but also as an entity which shall help the local community.”
