New twist in the soap opera Sporting Club Toulon. After being torn apart by the media in which they last week, Claude Joye and Mourad Boudjellal are again spaced by their lawyer in common. And the club of the Harbor is this time… to sell !
The audit scheduled for their first agreement, before a new fâcherie, will be done this week. What relaunch the crazy dream of the supporters of the Rascasse largely in favour of an arrival of the former president of the Rugby Club Toulonnais. A rendezvous between the two men to finalize the agreement would be provided during the week.
Claude Joye released by the mayor and partners private
What explains this sudden reversal of the situation ? According to our information, the current owner of the SCT does not have a lot of support around him. Even if he said not wanting to mingle with a possible redemption, the mayor of Toulon Hubert Falco wants to reduce drastically the subsidies allocated to the football club. This year, the amount paid by the city exceeded 500,000 euros. A hard blow for Claude Joye, who had about the same amount in its next budget.

Excited about a possible arrival of Mourad Boudjellal, some of the sponsors of the SCT, which has a strong present on the jersey last season, have served to Claude Joye that they no longer wanted to work with him. New stalls of private actors who had already de facto in great difficulty of finances, Azure and Gold. To accentuate the pressure, Mourad Boudjellal is expected to unveil this week two important partners who are willing to accompany him in his dream of football.
Relegated to National 2, Claude Joye was well separate a dozen players still under contract to re-launch a positive dynamic. The players that are considered undesirable would be roughly € 700,000 in payroll. Yet another problem for the accountant of training, few players want to go to the Sporting Club Toulon at the present time. They would be even willing to honor their contract. Another pebble in the finances of the SCT which remains very precarious.
This succession of impacts has been flexing Claude Joye from its initial position. Then he said he was only “ready to collaborate” with Mourad Boudjellal, the scenario of a sale is income more than ever on the table. Contacted this evening, Claude Joye has not responded to our requests. As to “MB”, he only replied that “everything is for sale, it is a question of price”. A price that will certainly not the six million claimed by the current president of SCT.
Reproached by a supporter of Sporting on Twitter – “what are you going to live at the Sporting will be 1000 times greater than to all the emotions that you have been able to live in your different lives… Mourad king of Toulon…. Look forward to the first trip to the Velodrome” -, Mourad Boudjellal responded without mystery : “Yes, but this time it will not be a relocation, promised.” A sign that the situation is truly shifting.
