As indicated by Le Parisien, AS Saint-Etienne is the subject of a takeover offer of 100 million euros from a Cambodian prince living in France.
This time it’s over soon. Bernard Caïazzo and Roland Romeyer, the two co-owners of theAS Saint-Etienne, are actively looking for a buyer and a new main shareholder should land before the end of the year.
The Parisian reveals, Saturday evening, that a crown prince of Cambodia, Norodom Ravichak, made an offer of 100 million euros for the Greens! The KPMG bank, which is responsible for the sale of the ten-time French champion club, is studying the proposal. A price that could well give way to the Caïazzo-Romeyer duo.
The 47-year-old obviously grew up in the Paris suburbs and runs a financial advisory firm based in the 13th arrondissement of Paris. He is above all a football fan. » He would come to build a competitive team with a lot of ambitions », As explained to his entourage in the national daily.
Grandson of King Sihanouk
Norodom Ravichak is one of the grandsons of King Sihanouk and one of the nephews of the current king, 68-year-old Norodom Sihamoni, who has no children.
The royal family maintains strong ties with France. While Cambodia became a French protectorate in 1863, Sihanouk proclaimed the country’s independence in 53, in the midst of the Indochina War (known as the “anti-French resistance war” in Southeast Asia). Sihanouk having married a French woman, the possible future boss of ASSE therefore has French origins.
