Extract from interview with Roland Duchatelet: Het Belang van Limburg (December 2017)

As a hobby he still has three football clubs with the German Carl Zeiss Jena, the Spanish AD Alcorcón, the British Charlton Athletic. The Hungarian Újpest is now in the hands of his son Roderick. And as is known, he sold STVV for the second time, this time at the Japanese DMM.com.

Als hobby beschikt hij met het Duitse Carl Zeiss Jena, het Spaanse AD Alcorcón, het Britse Charlton Athletic nog steeds over drie voetbalclubs. Het Hongaarse Újpest is ondertussen in handen van zijn zoon Roderick. En zoals geweten, verkocht hij STVV zopas voor de tweede keer, dit keer aan het Japanse DMM.com.


Well the above comments rounded off an interview with the journalist from Het Belang who listed all of Duchatelet's achievements, business interests and Companies but evidently Duchatelet was happy to have his football interests listed as hobbies!

Can he really be taken seriously by the EFL when he promotes this image of his ownership of Charlton?

  • It’s always been a hobby, a plaything, nothing more.

    But the toys are playing up :wink:

    Hobbies that he struggles to participate in

  • Surely a hobby is something you enjoy doing, something you have a passion for?

    We need Buzz Lightyear to the rescue.
