The regional newspaper explains in particular that the Cambodian prince “has not yet provided the famous entry ticket to 100 million euros”.

Scalded by the sporting situation of the team led by Claude Puel, the 47-year-old Cambodian businessman could finally wait for relegation to Ligue 2 to try to acquire the ASSE for a check less than the 100 million euros that is currently being discussed. However, this hesitation could cost Norodom Ravichak dearly.
