Bordeaux towards a bankruptcy filing, the Greens impacted at the Mercato?

Where will the fall of the Girondins de Bordeaux end? After being relegated sportingly in L2, they find themselves this morning in National 1 after the decision yesterday of the DNCG to demote them for failing to provide the financial guarantees requested. The Bordeaux management will obviously appeal to the Federation. It will be examined in the first half of July in order to be able to bring the calendars of the various championships into line with the decisions taken.

If the FFF were to confirm Bordeaux’s relegation to N1, L’Équipe explains that it would have to file for bankruptcy, since at this level the TV rights are only around €2 million, the money from the commercial company (16 5 M€ in two installments) will fly away and he will be forced to “sell off” his players. Gérard Lopez does not seem surprised by this decision of the DNCG. Had he anticipated it in order to push its creators to put their hands in their pockets to avoid losing everything?

Bordeaux sabotages the Mercato

This is a bit of the message that those around him sent last night: “The signal from the DNCG is that we have to find an agreement, and it makes it known in a violent way. There, we can no longer play cat and mouse. It’s very binary. Either we find an agreement or we don’t. We have our backs against the wall, we confide to the club. What is good, compared to this very tough decision, is that it forces the hand of the lenders and the club to find a better agreement. It’s this or nothing for anyone. We will have to listen to each other. In no way do I think the creators want to lose everything. »

At the same time, the FCGB’s strategy in the transfer window stems directly from its financial difficulties. And ASSE, embodied on the same track named Jimmy Giraudon, paid the price for an unfair maneuver by Lopez. “For 15 days now, the Bordeaux council has been contacting players, offering contracts while knowing that it may not keep its commitments (contractually). The goal is to prevent certain competing clubs from making the players,” insider Mohamed Toubache-Ter tweeted. Hope this whole thing is over for everyone.

to summarize

While the financial and administrative situation of the Girondins de Bordeaux is most alarming, the cancellation of a bankruptcy filing would no longer be ruled out. ASSE could be impacted at the level of its summer transfer window.
