Bordeaux demoted to National: The DNCG formalized its decision this Tuesday, June 14, 2022

Shock. Twenty-four days after the formalization of its sporting relegation to Ligue 2, Bordeaux has just been demoted administratively by the DNCG to National, after having studied its accounts closely on Tuesday. In early June, RMC Sport and South West revealed that the deficit of the club, last in L1 at the end of the 2021-22 season, was some 40 million euros. Girondins president Gérard Lopez will appeal the decision, the club said in a statement.

The club presented the guarantee of the re-engagement of the majority shareholder (Gerard Lopez) up to 10 million euros, an agreement with the holders of the club’s debt, as well as offers to sell some players, the cumulative amount of which exceeds the objectives set by the Commission“, indicated the Girondins de Bordeaux, considering that the decision of the DNCG was “brutal“.

A crucial meeting: Bordeaux is playing its future against the DNCG


As early as January, Thomas Jacquemier, deputy general manager of the Girondins de Bordeaux, had not made a fuss about the financial situation of the club. “Bordeaux could not survive a descent to L2he said at a press conference. We are not going to hide. Today, for the Girondins, there is no model, there is no life in L2. The income from TV rights in L2 does not allow the club to survive there.”

Saving the club is and remains my goal

Saving the club is and remains my goal“, had launched, for his part, Gérard Lopez before the last day won in Brest (4-2). From now on, the Girondin club will have to quickly find cash to save its place in Ligue 2. Thus, high value players could quickly find a way out, like Sekou Mara, Ui-jo Hwang, Rémi Oudin or Mbaye Niang.In addition, the transfer of Aurélien Tchouaméni to Real Madrid should bring in 11 million euros for his training club, not to mention the possible financial windfall linked to a probable departure of Jules Koundé from Sevilla FC.The road will be long to save one of the monuments of French football.
In addition, the DNCG has taken no action against LOSC, Saint-Etienne, Caen, Amiens and Red Star. Promoted to L2, Annecy will see its payroll supervised.
