A time on pole to buy the ASSE, the project led by Jean-Michel Roussier and Mathieu Bodmer would definitely be out of the race. The former OM president failed to raise the necessary funds.
The ASSE could soon go under the foreign flag. Bernard Caïazzo and Roland Romeyer received several applications, some from Russian and American investors. Eager to hand over to a billionaire, Caïazzo would have a preference for the project t Total Sports Investments , carried by Sergei Lomakin , 986th fortune in the world, but also for the 777 Partners project, whose investors are based in Miami. Regarding, the file led by Jean-Michel Roussier, it is definitely over.
Roussier withdraws from the file
The former president of OM did not hide his interest in ASSE and wanted to partner with Mathieu Bodmer. But first blow for Jean-Michel Roussier, the KPMG cabinet announced on November 23 that this project did not provide sufficient guarantees. Since then, Roussier has scrambled to try to find funds, but ultimately failed to complete his round. As But Football Club explains, the funds promised never arrived. Roussier therefore has no other choice but to withdraw from this file.
