Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has become co-owner of the Rochester Rhinos, the New York State-based club said on Tuesday.
The Rhinos, established in 1996, became the first team outside the top-flight Major League Soccer (MLS) to win the U.S. Open Cup in 1999, the former A-League side beating four MLS teams along the way.
Rhinos club statement: “This is a huge coup for Rochester and the Rhinos. Jamie is known throughout the soccer world and we are delighted that he has chosen to join us as a co-owner. Hopefully this fantastic news, will give everyone connected with the club the belief that there are good times ahead.”
