Will Christian Bilek club have a new owner? The management accepted the offer of an American businessman
The British “Sky Sports” website reported that the management accepted an offer to buy Derby County from Chris Kirchner, the American businessman and owner of the logistics company Slync.io. “The offer relates to the purchase of the club on the terms of the current contract for the rental of Pride Park. Kirchner has expressed an interest in buying the club at the end of 2021, and officials have welcomed another purchase bid with great enthusiasm. Now the officials have entered the period of additional operational and contractual discussions “- the statement reads the current Derby managers.
This means that Chris Kirchner will now have access to all of the club’s accounts and be able to complete the deal, but it will likely take at least another two months for the official takeover of the derby. The biggest problem is Pride Park, which is owned by Mel Morris, the former owner of Derby. Kirchner must therefore conclude a separate agreement with him to purchase or lease the stadium. The American had previously explored the possibility of buying Preston North End, but had finally decided to boycott Derby.
Chris Kirchner reached out to Derby County supporters back in October last year and gained their trust. “Derby is a club with a great history and has one of the best support groups in England. I want to be a part of it and support you,” Kirchner was quoted by the Palestinian News Agency as saying. Wayne Rooney, coach of “Barano”, has a positive attitude to cooperation with the American investor. Chris has some great ideas, I spent some time with him. The coach said that it is important to us that the owner is the one who dedicates himself to the club.
