Burgener or Degen? In Basel there is a showdown in the power struggle for FC Basel. FCB has invited to a very short-term media conference for Friday – and wants to talk about the financial year.

The topic of this: the fiscal years 2020 and 2021.
The short-term approach is irritating.

Who will win the power struggle at FC Basel? Today, Friday, the club could provide clarity itself. Late on Thursday afternoon, FCB will send out an invitation for a media conference on the 2020 and 2021 financial years. This will take place on Friday at 1.30 p.m. This very short-term announcement is irritating and leaves room for speculation.
Will FC Basel announce a possible decision in the power struggle over the club’s leadership on Friday? This week, events in this regard had rolled over. On Monday, an excerpt from the commercial register shows that the 27 billion British asset manager Centricus is joining Basel Dream & Vision AG. This in turn had recently submitted an offer to FCB board of directors Bernhard Burgener to take over his shares in the club. The British from Centricus apparently want to invest up to 200 million in FC Basel.
On the other side is David Degen. The former FCB player also owns shares in the club and also has the right to pre-sell Burgener shares. On Wednesday Degen posted a post on Instagram with the text “I spent the best time of my life at FC Basel. I grew up in Basel and I will do everything I can to ensure that FCB returns to its former strength. ».
Epee deal as good as through?
On the same day Degen was spotted in front of Bernhard Burgener’s office in Pratteln. The Lampenberger put his offer to buy on the table of the FCB boss. This should amount to around 16.4 million francs. As 20 Minuten has learned, at least one side is optimistic that the epee deal is as good as through.
The board of directors of FC Basel Holding AG still has to wave through this takeover, but due to Degen’s pre-sale rights, his hands could be more or less tied. Otherwise a legal dispute threatens. In the invitation to the media conference on Friday, at least an “Outlook for the 2021 financial year of FC Basel 1893 AG” is announced.
