Through the communication agency mandated by ASSE, Roland Romeyer and Bernard Caïazzo took stock of the club's sale process, launched last April, and thus calm the rumors surrounding this soap opera.

The sale of ASSE has seen many twists and turns in recent hours. KPMG , an audit firm mandated to scrutinize the applications, had indeed set a deadline for submitting offers. Since Monday, it is therefore impossible to submit a file for the resumption of the Forez club and some candidates are already out of the game, like Norodom Ravichak . The Prince of Cambodia would have “provided a document of financial guarantee of 100 million euros emanating from a large international bank, which turns out to be a forgery”, as explained the ASSE by the means of a press release. Despite everything, several offers were sent to Roland Romeyer and Bernard Caïazzo since according to information from L'Equipe, at least three projects are in the running. First of all, there is that of Olivier Markarian , a businessman from Valence in the Drôme region and therefore the bearer of a local project which greatly appeals to Roland Romeyer , but much less to Bernard Caïazzo .

Candidates for the takeover of ASSE had to submit their offers before Monday, November 8, 6 p.m. Several offers have indeed been received by KPMG, which is studying them carefully. They are subject to rigorous classic checks in this type of operation (credibility of commitments, origin of funds, etc.). KPMG will select the best offers for the club to avoid any mishap. The shareholders will be very attentive to the formal commitments of the candidates to allow the club to nurture great sporting ambitions ”, explains this press release. Consequently, this file should evolve in the coming days. In the meantime, the ASSE continues to fight to improve its sporting situation which clearly does not represent an asset for the sale …
