“Lierse has a deal reached with a buyer. Further details will follow tomorrow through our official channels”, with that message on the official website announced the club Thursday night to 23u28 that there white smoke is what concerns the future of the club. About the identity of the new owner at that time was still not known, but the group around David Nakhid seems to be the leading contender. Besides Nakhid was at the end of a second unknown party in conversation with the club.
A goal in extra time. That is just about the best description for the news that Lierse Thursday evening the world have submitted. Maged Samy was already in september looking for a buyer of the club, and Thursday was that just before the deadline has found. The club had for midnight the licentiedossier to the Belgian Court of arbitration for Sport (BAS) to deliver. For a chance to win a license, the club had absolutely a transferee required. Who is there now, all of that does not automatically mean that the license is already within. The deal that is made would only continue if the club is also effectively a license. Wait and see whether that construction for the BASS to be a valid construction. On 3 may Lierse appear for the BASS, that at the latest on 10 may ruling.
The ailing Lierse has been a quite season problems to make ends meet. It struggled with late payments to players, youth coaches, staff and suppliers. The Wadi Degla of Maged Samy had the funding tap off and to survive in professional football a takeover is absolutely necessary.
If Lierse bone catches in the BASS will be the number thirty disappear from the Belgian football. The only option is a kind of survival of the club is still a Beerschot-scenario: a merger with a club within the radius of thirty kilometers, to start in the series of that club. In this perspective, it is argued supporterscollectief Lierse for Always had conversations with Nijlen and Oosterzonen. A scenario such as at KV Mechelen with a liquidation and degradation of two series is not possible. The deadline for the transfer of a number to a new association – such as KV Mechelen fifteen years ago – is already on 31 march passed.
