Beligian investor lined up as players consider their futuresPosted: August 24, 2015
Via David Lewis: Belgian billionaire Roland Duchatelet is reportedly at the centre of the group looking to purchase the Roar off the embattled Bakrie Group it emerged today. Duchatelet, 68, is the majority owner of a number of across Europe with Charlton Athletic being the highest profile along with other clubs in Belgium, Germany, Spain and Hungary.
Representatives of Brisbane’s current owner have reportedly been in Europe trying to tie up a deal for the past two weeks but progress has stalled as things seemingly turn from bad to worse back here with some players reportedly considering their futures at the club.
In the same article, Lewis hinted that some of the playing staff are fed up with the current saga and are considering their futures at the club should things drag out for much longer. No players were named, but it’s understandable that some are growing tired of worrying about being paid.
