We then understood that the discussions with David Blitzer, at the head of the company Bolt Football Holding, were moving in the right direction. A trend first confirmed by journalist Romain Molina. Then by Manu Lonjon on Twitter. ” Bolt Football Holding emissaries are currently carrying out a global audit of ASSE “said the insider on the social network. Proof that the American businessman has started the final stretch before the takeover of the Greens. Moreover, the co-owner of Crystal Palace has already planned changes within the Saint-Etienne club.
Other changes to expect after Batlles
Manu Lonjon actually speaks of a ” major redesign if the sale closes. ” Things are in progress. Clearly “, insists the specialist, confident about the end of the negotiations. It is therefore under the American flag that AS Saint-Etienne should start next season in Ligue 2. It remains to be seen what changes will be made by the future management. The latter may have validated this week the appointment of coach Laurent Batlles, successor to Pascal Dupraz who was not retained at the end of his contract.
