Hearts put up for sale by Vladimir Romanov to buy a Theatre


The Lithuanian businessmen told Russian state news agency RIA Novosti that he was seeking to sell Hearts, FBK Kaunas and Partizan Minsk.

He said: “I want to leave football. I have given the order to find buyers for all my clubs. I want to buy the theatre and sell some of my sports clubs.

“The idea to buy a theatre comes to my mind every time I am in the theatre. I like the restoration project at the Mariinsky [theatre].

“In football, Hearts is controlled by a media mob of [Rupert] Murdoch. I once fought with them but everyone said it was the mafia. Now they, with one voice, agree with me.

“Now I am instructed to seek a buyer for all of my football clubs. I want to completely get away from football. I am a poor man because I invested everything in sport.”

The news of Romanov putting Hearts up for sale comes in the same week that the club failed to pay their players’ wages on time for the second successive month.
