The Duchatelet football empire

An interesting in depth look at the Duchatelet football empire from Hungary: Empire builders

A key to their approach is seen as reducing the staff to the absolute minimum possible on the cheapest wages possible. It doesn't matter if they know nothing about football. The same minimalist approach is taken to the squad. Focus on selling players.

  1. Makes horrible reading and raises a major question, if you own an asset like a football club , surely the motivation of any successful business person would be to maximise revenue AND gain prestige from it's success. Only a very warped mind would undertake this grubby scheme of decline of some great football clubs. Let's hope the sale of the club finally goes through, the patient is in critical condition!
