The Girondins of Bordeaux have a crucial meeting on Wednesday concerning the winter transfer window. Gerard Lopez is not for all that worried.
Bordeaux should be allowed to recruit in January
Would Bordeaux be allowed to recruit this winter or not? The answer will be known this Wednesday afternoon following the passage of Gerard Lopez in front of the DNCG, for the club’s financial report at the scapular mid-season 2021-2022. In the meantime, the trend would rather be on fire on the side of the financial policeman of the Professional Football League (LFP). Based on information from South West, the president of the FCGB did not » no worries « for appointments in front of the DNCG. He would have kept his promises this summer.
The regional newspaper goes further and ensures that « The conditions imposed during the summer transfer window (a framework for the wage bill and the obligation to sell at least as much in value as it buys) should be maintained for the winter transfer window ». In other words, the Girondins de Bordeaux will not be banned from recruiting during the winter transfer window in January, if we are to trust the indiscretions of the source.
FCGB: Already many reinforcements this summer
Gérard Lopez bought Bordeaux from the American group King Street in July 2021 when the Bordeaux club was threatened with administrative demotion in the national division. He had to give guarantees to the DNCG so that it lifts the threat of relegation of the Girondins. This allowed them to stay in Ligue 1 and even to strengthen this summer.
In addition to the arrival of Vladimir Petkovic in place of Jean-Louis Gasset on the Bordeaux sideline, Gérard Lopez has recruited several players in the form of loans for the most part: Fansergio (midfielder), Jean Onana (defensive midfielder) ), Gidéon Mensah (left back), Ricardo Mangas (defender), Timothée Pembélé (central defender), Javairô Dilrosun (winger), Stian Gregersen (defender) and Alberth Elis (striker).
