Another Talksport interview with Roland – another load of contradictory jibberish from Roland Duchatelet and so it goes on and on and on …………..
A lot of what he says about the EFL is correct and allowing significant annual losses without implementing more sensible Financial Fair Play rules is as he correctly points out a stupid way to run the sport.
Any ‘asset’ is only worth what someone is prepared to pay for it. In Roland’s deluded mind, the price of buying the club is a separate issue from the annual running costs. This premise is obviously utter nonsense and would be nonsense in any walk of life or business scenario.
Based on a ridiculous valuation of the physical assets at The Valley and Sparrow Lane, Roland has set a price of £40m, which no sane buyer is prepared to pay because they know that the underlying value of a football club is basically zero since property development is impossible.
If Roland reduces his asking price to nil or even £10m, he would be able to sell the club tomorrow so his argument that he can’t sell the club because of the annual Operating Losses is just wrong, disingenuous and an outright lie.
The problem is and has been for the last 2 years or more is that the price he is asking for the club is far too much.
