Barely six months after the takeover of OL, John Textor was summoned by the DNCG to bail out the coffers. And not in the smallest proportions…
This is not really the time for a carefree holiday near Lyon where OL, weighed down by a very average season, without Europe as a result, have suffered a somewhat sluggish takeover. To the point of worrying the very financial policeman of French professional (Site notre bureau spécialisé), the National Directorate of Control and Management (DNCG).
According to L’Equipe, this last cell of the Professional (Site notre blog d’information) League (LFP) is claiming no less than 60 million euros from the new majority shareholder of Les Gones, John Textor, by June 30. This is to fill a gap that ex-president Jean-Michel Aulas had initially undertaken to cover, by selling 70 million euros in assets. Without this, the inhabitants of Rhone expose themselves to sanctions including the prohibition of recruitment and the supervision of the wage bill.

The operation is in progress but the League requires concrete now, and within 15 days. The distrust between the actions of Botafogo (Brazil), Molenbeek (Belgium) and Crystal Palace (England) is palpable in the upper echelons of the hexagonal ball. Reassuring pass.
