Charlton protest group confronts Roland Duchatelet and orders him to sell

On Sunday morning, the Charlton protest group, Belgium Twenty, released a video showing them confront Roland Duchatelet and ordering him to sell the football club.

After a 2 – 0 defeat away at Peterborough, Charlton now sit a mere four points from the relegation zone into the lowest league of professional English football. A finish below fourteenth in League One, would see the Addicks finish in their lowest position in the post-World War II era.

In recent weeks, there have been quiet rumblings of a takeover in the works for the red Southeast London outfit. Rumours and speculation arising from who the interested parties could be, some believe it could be the Kuwaitis being fronted by Peter Varney. Others have suggested possible Chinese money, which is being fronted by Ronnie Rosenthal, who has been spotted at The Valley and its facilities in recent weeks, some have gone as far to say the Chinese OGC Nice owners are the consortium which is specifically interested.

Charlton fans and the relevant protest groups are preparing to mount the pressure on the regime to force him Duchatelet out the door, as he speculates in his open discussions with interested parties whether or not to sell. The largest Charlton protest group, the Coalition Against Roland Duchatelet (CARD), announced plans last week to take part in a second joint protest with the Coventry City fans at the Ricoh Arena on Good Friday.

They also announced a rallying cry for all boycotting fans to return to The Valley on the final game of the season, on the 30th April, against Swindon Town. The objective is to make clear to Duchatelet he must leave now and to show to a new prospective owner, the passion, ambition and driven fans which exist at the red Southeast London outfit, and are in waiting to help rebuild success at The Valley.

Today, the Belgium Twenty released a video ordering the controversial owner Roland Duchatelet to sell the club and threw fake money at him, which had a print of his face, along with the “£50 million” which is the debt that Charlton currently owes to Duchatelet’s parent company Staprix. The largest debt the club has ever amounted in its history.
