New Bolton blow as takeover col­lapses

Daily Mail - - Europa League - MIKE KEEGAN

Bolton may not play their fi­nal game of the sea­son should they be placed into ad­min­is­tra­tion, with the Cham­pi­onship club’s takeover col­laps­ing last night. the English Foot­ball league an­nounced that the crisis club’s home match with Brent­ford, post­poned in the midst of a player strike, had been resched­uled for tues­day. How­ever, they added that should the rel­e­gated out­fit go into ad­min­is­tra­tion they will not in­sist on the match tak­ing place to al­low an ad­min­is­tra­tor to fo­cus fully on find­ing a new owner. Prospec­tive new owner lau­rence Bassini had been given un­til last night to pro­vide proof he could fund a takeover from Ken An­der­son. But Bolton an­nounced in mid-evening that they con­sid­ered Bassini’s ap­proach ‘at an end’ and said they would hold no fur­ther dis­cus­sions with him. they added that An­der­son would con­sult ad­vis­ers be­fore de­cid­ing how to pro­ceed. Play­ers were given loans from the PFA to cover por­tions of March’s wages, which were not paid. April salaries have also not been re­ceived.
