Long keen to sell ASSE to a local investor, Roland Romeyer was unable to retain Olivier Markarian's offer, whose project was not sufficiently solid. But the situation could change.

Launched several months ago, the ASSE sale processhas clearly entered a new phase since November 23, when the club's shareholders announced that they had refused the two takeover offers sent by Olivier Markarian and Jean-Michel Roussier . KPMG , an audit firm in charge of examining all the files, judged that the origin of the funds for these two projects did not meet the criteria. But the sale of the club is not called into question, however, since several candidates are still in the running.

A much more solid local project?

And a project could particularly appeal to Roland Romeyer . Indeed, the president of the management board had the firm intention to sell the club to a local investor, who appreciates the ASSE . Unfortunately, Olivier Markarian 's project was not strong enough. But according to information from L'Equipe, a much larger local project could see the light of day. The company Smart Good Things , headquartered in Saint-Etienne, talks with Roland Romeyer through its founder Serge Bueno . A letter of intent could also be sent soon and a rapprochement with Olivier Markarian could not be ruled out. If the two French businessmen manage to come to an agreement, this local project could take on a whole new dimension and compete with foreign investors in the race … with a much more reassuring origin of funds.
