The French football club OSC Lille has a new owner. It was bought by the Luxembourg-based investment group Callisto Sporting. Before the weekend matches of the 16th round, Lille was in the first place of Ligue 1, a point ahead of St. Germain.
Despite its success on the lawn in both domestic competition and the European League, the North French club is plagued by financial instability caused by debts and the cessation of negotiations on television rights. "We strongly believe in the potential of the club and we will do everything to fulfill it," said the representatives of the new owner, who also promised to eliminate the debt of 123 million euros and invest in the development of the club. The report was brought by the AP agency.
