FC Utrecht club owner, Frans Van Seumeren, will not invest in FC Utrecht until the club is financially back on their feet again.
During the 2011/2012 season, they lost a whopping €10 million and this problem needs to be resolved until Van Seumeren will invest in the club again.
The losses have been greater than expected due to reorganization within the club. Staff members such as Foeke Booy have been fired and replaced and that hasn’t helped the balance sheets either.
In the following 3 years, FC Utrecht will have to get rid of all the debt they’re currently in. The goal is to be financially healthy, without the money made from transfers.
This shows their ambitions, as FC Utrecht doesn’t want to be a club that has to sell their best players in order to survive. The recent sales of players such Michel Vorm, Dries Mertens, Kevin Strootman and Ricky Van Wolfswinkel helped a lot with the financial situation of the club, but the club can’t keep selling their players in order to stay financially healthy.
When Utrecht is able to stay financially healthy without the sales of players, then Van Seumeren is willing to invest in the club again. This will not be easy for FC Utrecht to achieve, but things are looking good for them now.
Recent salary cuts will make it easier to achieve this goals. Sadly this will mean FC Utrecht will not be able to aim for European Football the coming years, but when the club is financially healthy again, FC Utrecht will be back up there.
