Roland Duchatelet has been in London this week starting to make decisions about next season, including the sale of Ezri Konsa and the managerial vacancy: Duchatelet takes the helm
Richard Cawley tweeted, 'RD definitely wants to sell but I don't believe that Australian-backed consortium expected Konsa to go. Does get to a point where RD has got to start making some decisions on manager etc if this doesn't get resolved.'
'Got to say that the information I'm getting is that Andrew Muir's consortium still in for the club, deal not collapsed etc etc, but you have got to question how close it now is if RD is selling a prize asset.'
'In terms of why this takeover has taken so long, I think you'd find that both parties will blame the other. It is hard to pull apart some of the info because it comes from multiple sources.'
'In terms of where that puts a deadline, I'm not sure who knows. Definitely not me.' A despairing Cawley added, 'Would anyone mind if I just step out of writing the takeover stuff and focus on the thriving local bowls scene?'
'Jimmy Seed' has commented, 'Was yesterday the first meeting between Roland Duchâtelet and Andrew Muir? I have a feeling it may have been. Well that went well then didn’t it?'
