Chinese-American investors to take over OGC Nice at end of season

A Chinese-American group of investors will fully take over as owners of French Ligue 1 side OGC Nice at the end of the season.

Chinese-American Chien Lee, Chinese Alex Zheng and American Paul Conway bought an 80-per-cent share of the club in June 2016.

The club’s president Jean-Pierre Rivere and sporting director Julien Fournier will sell their remaining 20-per-cent stake to seal the deal.
