Romain Roux wrote an open letter about the situation of the Girondins de Bordeaux. This owner of Bordeaux wines responds in particular to François Pinault, who had launched an appeal to the winegrowers of the region to save the club, on sale and placed under the protection of justice.
François Pinault’s appeal has been heard. The wealthy businessman (and shareholder of Stade Rennais) had urged his “fellow owners of Bordeaux Grands Crus” to mobilize for a project to reperise the Girondins de Bordeaux, released by King Street.
One of these winegrowers, Romain Roux, came forward on Thursday with an open letter: “I have decided to support this club with all my heart. And everyone must be able to do it at their own level, that we either supporter, winegrower or Bordeaux. We must unite behind the FCGB today, tomorrow and for a better future “.
“We are 13,000 winegrowers in the region, also writes Romain Roux. If everyone, with their means, puts themselves at the service of the club, by donating part of their production, from a few bottles to several thousand depending on their possibilities, we could thus feed an exceptional auction to concretely help the club! We could also go to support the team at the stadium as soon as the sanitary situation allows it. I am sure that we will be able to fill this stadium as in the heyday of Lescure ” .
“Everyone has a role to play”
This owner of Bordeaux wines does not fail to mention the supporters in his text: “The calls for support and mobilization have never been so numerous to defend our club. And I am sure that everyone has a role to play, including our fan friends, the ultras first. “
“Proud to be Girondin”, Romain Roux also expresses his “emotion”, his “fear” of seeing the club risk a descent in Ligue 2. Three days from the end, the men of Jean-Louis Gasset are 15th and not are only five points ahead of FC Nantes, 18th and first play-off.
“This is what we call the history of a great club, a historic club of the French championship, which must not die. Long live FC Girondins de Bordeaux and its 140 years of popular history!”, Concludes Romain Roux.
