Steve Nash trains with Spanish second division team

Last month Steve Nash was showing off his soccer skills at the NBA All-Star Game skills competition. This month, he’s displaying them in a more traditional setting – a soccer field.

The former NBA MVP took part in a training session with RCD Mallorca, a team in Spain’s second division. Nash was part of an investment group, headed by Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver and Suns executive Andy Kohlberg, which purchased a controlling interest in the club for $21 million dollars in January.

Nash is also part of the ownership group which owns the Vancouver Whitecaps MLS franchise.

The club’s twitter account posted a multiple tweet relating to Nash’s participation, including a video of him taking part in a training exercise.
