Tom Brady, who retired from professional football in February after 23 seasons, has announced he will become the minority owner of English soccer club Birmingham City FC.
“You may be asking, “What do you know about football, Tom? Well, let’s just say I’ve got a lot to learn,” Brady said in a video posted to the club’s social media. “But I do know a few things about winning. I think they might translate pretty well. I know success starts with the work put in when the world isn’t watching.”
Brady’s investment comes weeks after American hedge fund billionaire Tom Wagner was appointed Birmingham’s Chairman of the Board, the first steps in his takeover of the club.
