Nice (France) (AFP) – A group of Chinese and American investors bought 80 per cent of French Ligue 1 side Nice on Friday, the club announced.

President Jean-Pierre Rivere maintains 20% of the shares and he insisted that the governance of the club remains unchanged.

He as well as director Julien Fournier will stay in charge for a “minimum of three years”.

The new shareholders are Sino-American Chien Lee and Chinese businessman  Alex Zheng, described as “men who are active in the hotel, tourism and property business”.
