In the recent times the club has suffered serious financial trouble. The new management set a task to become the champion of the country within 3 years.
Zhordania stated of purchasing 100 per cent of club's shares. He added he intends to move in the Netherlands soon to manage the Vitesse.
According to Zhordania, he purchased the club for on money. Yet Georgian journalists claim the money was given by his good friend Roman Abramovich, the owner of Chelsea.
The new authorities, headed by President Saakashvili, achieved the resignation of Zhordania from the position in the Georgian Football Federation. After that he turned in prison, but was released after paying some sum in the frameworks of procedural agreement.
Previously Zhordania owned Dinamo FC [Tbilisi], and these times the club very often became the champion of Georgia.
