Due to the lack of payment by Mediapro for the October deadline, Ligue 1 clubs are currently unable to pay player and staff salaries. The LFP must react quickly.
If the leaders of French football had planned to fuel Champagne this season thanks to the golden rain that Mediapro was to pour out on French football, it is quickly time to get out of Champomy. Because the brutal turnaround in this deal strikes with unprecedented violence in Ligue 1 and Ligue 2, where things were not very bright following the impact of the coronavirus epidemic. And if the LFP does everything to avoid the worst, namely total bankruptcy, in particular by appealing for a loan, on the side of the clubs we are starting to panic because in less than a week it will be necessary to pay the salaries of the players and staff members. And for some teams, it will be impossible. Quite simply.
Confiding in Le Monde, Philippe Caillot, deputy chairman of Angers, which is not the most spending club in Ligue 1, is sounding the alarm signal for the SCO but also for other elite formations. ” In Angers, TV rights represent more than 80% of the budget, and I think it’s the same in all clubs. The rest are the partners who have remained loyal to us, and the ticketing, which is at zero at the moment. So the economic problem is simple. The League payout should take place this weekend, Friday 16. We are told: “We will pay you 30% of what we owe you, and we hope to pay you the rest at the end of the month. “Except that we have salaries to pay from October 20, and it’s not just the players: we must not forget the whole club behind. Both in administration and with professional players, we have a significant payroll. And the only answer we get is: “Take that, we’ll see the rest”. In Angers, we have the reputation of being a well-managed club, we are not in debt, and we are experiencing difficulties. So I imagine for the clubs which are in more trouble, which for example made a discount on their potential gains of the rights TV… their situation must be catastrophic. And almost all clubs are concerned “, Warns the leader of Anjou, who hopes that a troubleshooting solution will be quickly put in place. Otherwise, the situation could quickly turn into total wreck.
