American businessman and successful entrepreneur Chien Lee has revealed his desire to be part of the German Bundesliga in the future amid the rules surrounding the soccer scene in the country.
The investor who’s also the owner of some European football clubs could be part of a Bundesliga club due to several reasons he stated like the style of play, organization and the level of football Germany have built over the years.
Speaking to t-online, the American expressed his desire to own a Bundesliga club.
“I am very interested in investing in German football,” he told t-online as published by Fussball Transfers.
He further went on to explain his concerns about the 50+1 rule in German football which has prevented foreign investors from spending heavily on Bundesliga clubs, unlike other European soccer leagues.
“The rules are the rules – and they also apply to me,” he added.
“We play high pressing with our clubs – just like you do in the Bundesliga.”
Chien Lee owns major European football clubs like FC Barnsley, FC Thun, KV Oostende, AS Nancy-Lorraine, Esbjerg fB and FC Den Bosch, and OGC Nice.
However, OGC Nice was sold to other investors in 2019.
Chien Lee looks at the possibility of extending his European football empire to Germany despite the 50+1 rule which stands as an obstacle.
