LJ ON KLD TAKEOVER



Lee Johnson has been chatting about the Kyril Louis-Dreyfus takeover and believes we’ll now see some much-needed investment into the infrastructure of the club after years of neglect by Stewart Donald and Ellis Short which has seen the club stuck in League One.


Louis-Dreyfus takes over the vacant chairman role with a reported 59% shareholding, which leaves Juan Sartori with 20%, Stewart Donald with 15% and Charlie Methven with 6%.


INVESTMENT

“It’s brilliant that it’s done. The important thing now is that we can invest in the correct areas. Kyril is coming in, he has some great ideas and he is very well-rounded. He has had a front-row seat watching his dad run Marseille and Club Bruges, so I have been very impressed with him. I’m looking forward to working with him and trying to take the club forward.”


MARATHON

“Football can slap you in the face very, very, quickly, so we have to stay focused. League One is a marathon and that’s why I’ve talked about the clubs with the big squads coming through. We are building momentum, we are building belief, and yes, there will be bumps in the road and hurdles to jump, but the signs are positive and that’s good.”
