Lionel Messi, Cesc Fabregas buy shares in Gerard Pique's FC Andorra

Cesc Fabregas and Lionel Messi have both bought shares in FC Andorra following Barcelona defender Gerard Pique’s takeover of the club.

Diari d'Andorra have confirmed the two global stars have become involved with the Spanish lower league club after Pique, whom they both know from their La Masia days, after he bought the club last week.

The move saw Pique’s company Kosmos take full responsibility for the club’s debt after FC Andorra’s directors sanctioned the move at a general meeting.

FC Andorra currently compete in the Primera Catalana – the fifth level of Spanish football – but played in the third tier between 1980 and 1998, with a Copa del Rey fourth round appearance in 1991.

They are managed by former Barca players Gabri Garcia and Albert Jorquera while among their recent signings are Adria Vilanova, son of former Blaugrana boss Tito.

Pique’s company Kosmos also have made business moves in tennis, esports, video games, eyeglasses, isotonic drinks and organic hamburgers.
