Antti Sumiala played for FC PoPa, a club which he actually owns and more or less runs nowadays. Season 2009 was club's first at the First Division (2nd highest level in Finland) and they finished 4th. Antti scored four goals. I think he's probably considering to play one more season, but we'll see.

Thanks for the update, I knew he'd been playing for PoPa, but hadn't realized he was the owner and basically ran the club, that's cool.
