Mallorca training accompanied by new owner, ex-NBA star Steve Nash

Spanish club Mallorca have posted images of new owner and former NBA star Steve Nash joining in a training session with his players.

The second-division club notes on Twitter "a top-class reinforcement for today's practice," along with images of Nash kicking the ball with players.

Nash, together with Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver and Suns executive Andy Kohlberg, bought a controlling share of the club worth €20 million ($21m) in January.

The three American owners will attend Mallorca's match against Oviedo on Saturday as part of the club's 100th anniversary celebration.

Mallorca had played for 16 consecutive seasons in the Primera Division before being relegated to the second division in 2013.
