Bergkamp and Co to buy an EFL club?


Reesh

Recommended Posts

"Dennis Bergkamp is among ex-players / head coaches / manager / football agent, looking
to buy a lower league club in England, such as a EFL league one & two side.

The consortium consists of -

Ex-Arsenal player Dennis Bergkamp, Ex-Liverpool player Dirk Kuyt,
Ex-Celtic & Manchester United player Henrik Larsson

Ronald Koeman - Manager - Ex-player having played for -
Groningen, Ajax, PSV, Barcelona - 192 goals in 535 games.
Managed the Netherlands National team, plus up**** European clubs + 2 English clubs.

Dutch Agent - Rob Jansen

There are 5 people named in the consortium, but one or two others may join.

Dutch Agent Rob Jansen said, on podcast that the consortium are in the process of buying
a club in England, but not allowed to say who, with EFL league one or two being the
prefered league.
Larsson, Kuyt & Berkamp tried to buy Wycombe Wanderers in 2019, but were unsuccessful,
the three along with the rest hope to revive their plans, with a Northern club being most
likely target, within the Manchester / Birmingham areas.
They plan to manage the football club, with Berkamp setting up the academy.

Thoughts could they have a interest in the Millers, with the club looking at the trap-door
into league one, a club with a good new stadium, in need of a new training ground, short
of a well thought out academy, not in debt.
But would Tony Stewart sell up, or allow the consortium to buy into the club, with him
being the figurehead.
Could the ex-players bring fans into the stadium, especially with Berkamp bringing his
style of football coaching into the club.

[ Could the failed sale of Wycome Wanderers to Larsson, Kuyt & Berkamp, be down to that
Adams Park, was left to the fans, after the death of chairman & owner Frank Adams, being
now the ownership of the ground is Frank Adams Legacy Ltd ]"

I can’t imagine how absolutely shite it would be if they bought Rotherham. They’re noisy nobs as it is now!

They need a more or less debt free club to make it work. Reading is in too deep, Blackpool isn't squeaky clean either. 

They also need a solid, sustainable, fanbase. 

Rotherham fit the bill nicey. It's known in certain circles that Stewart has been looking for a way out since Covid. He wants to move abroad but is like Chansiri in that he won't just sell to anyone and spoil his legacy. 

The first team train at Parkgate FC. The academy are split across 4 sites.
