Mother ship to be sold?

Reports are circulating in Belgium that Roland is planning to sell Standard Liege to Russian investors. There will be a press conference later this morning: Standard Liege

Standard Liege has also been the lynchpin of the network, but Roland is a businessman and would not turn down a good offer. It appears, however, that he is no longer asking for €70 million.

Quite what the implications for Charlton might be are uncertain. It could release further funds for investment with Charlton becoming the new mother ship. Or Charlton could be sold and the network gradually dismantled.
