During the meeting between Crystal Palace and Manchester United last night, which ended with a score of 1-1, a rather unusual scene took place in the stands. Supporters unfurled banners against John Textor, the new majority shareholder of OL, who is also the owner of the Eagles. “Owner of several clubs, betting on the stock market, Textor we don’t trust you” wrote the supporters.
The American businessman has held 40% of the shares of the English club since August 2021 after having injected 100 million euros and integrated it into his holding company Eagle Football Holdings where OL, Botafogo and the Belgians of RWD Molenbeek. Crystal Palace supporters are especially angry after recent reports revealing the future listing of Eagle Football Holdings on the New York Stock Exchange.
