Budapest Mayor Tarlos Ready To Find Buyer For  FTC
"Budapest mayor Istvan Tarlos is willing to work with Prime Minister Viktor Orban to ensure that the Ferencvaros football club (FTC) is bought by Hungarian interests.

Tarlos told the tabloid Blikk that he will meet with FTC owner Kevin McCabe on December 3 to try to find Hungarian potential investors.

McCabe announced last week that he wants to sell FTC in whole or in part.

McCabe bought the club and its real estate for Ft 6 billion two years ago and now values them at Ft 14 billion, Magyar Hirlap reports, citing The Financial Times."
