Olivier Létang “publicly” denounces Gérard Lopez (ex-LOSC) and his methods before the Senate

In search of funds from the Girondins de Bordeaux, the former president of LOSC Gérard Lopez was publicly denounced by Olivier Létang, interviewed by the Senate.

Twelfth in Ligue 2 at the end of the 2023-24 season, the Girondins de Bordeaux are far, very far from having achieved their sporting objectives and, as too often recently, they find themselves in difficulty when it comes time to pass. before the DNCG, financial policeman of French football. The Bordeaux club has, according to France Blue Gironde, requested the postponement of his meeting pending the arrival of American funds. Gérard Lopez, owner of the Girondins and former president of LOSC, is currently in very advanced discussions to recover a sum of around 40 million euros in the form of debt. This should be used to make up a deficit of around 50 million euros.

These actions were recently denounced by his successor at LOSC, Olivier Létang. The northern president took advantage of a visit to the Senate, in the René Monory room, to briefly discuss the case of Gérard Lopez: “I was talking earlier about responsibilities… When we arrived in December 2020 with Maarten (Petermann of the Merlyn Partners fund), it may come as a shock, but the club was economically dead. Besides, I am going to say it publicly, but I am surprised that a French club has once again been given to a person (Gérard Lopez and Bordeaux) who is still not domiciled for tax purposes in France and who has already sunk several clubs abroad. And when we see the situation of this club today, with public funds used, as a French citizen who pays his taxes in France, I find it quite average.he pointed out during a momentary digression.
