Foot OL – OL: Lyon in turmoil, Aulas clinging! – Olympique Lyonnais

Jean-Michel Aulas faced some difficulties during this particularly difficult season at OL.

Catastrophic results in the league, adventure ended earlier than expected in the Europa League, incidents in the stands, friction with the supporters, departure of two historic investors… Jean-Michel Aulas has plenty to deal with this season in Olympic Lyonnais, perhaps a little too much for a 73-year-old president, who certainly gave his life to football, but who today pays the price with a tired, even exhausted face. According to RMC, which investigated the relatives of Jean-Michel Aulas, the president of Olympique Lyonnais has never had to manage so many heavy files at once. Logically, “JMA” sometimes feels a form of fatigue. This is also the feeling that emerged during his mixed zone interview after the win over Montpellier when discussing the Ultras’ insults against Lyon striker Karl Toko-Ekambi.

Jean-Michel Aulas wants OL . don’t let it down

In these particularly difficult times, Jean-Michel Aulas could rightly feel the need to take a step back or even switch outright before leaving his health there. But according to the radio, Jean-Michel Aulas does not intend to abandon Olympique Lyonnais in these troubled times. After all, the boss of OL has no intention of letting go of the management of his club, of which he is the historical and reference shareholder. A priori, next season will be played for OL without a European Cup. A hard blow but also a way for Jean-Michel Aulas to reset the counters and start again healthier. In particular, the desire of the OL boss to create a strong identity environment in Lyon with the return of former players such as Lacazette, Tolisso or even Gonalons and Umtiti, whose names have all been mentioned in Lyon in the perspective of the summer transfer window . It remains to be seen whether Jean-Michel Aulas will manage to free Olympique Lyonnais from all crises to start over as he hopes for new bases, healthier and less fearsome. What is certain is that he has no intention of handing over the running of OL to anyone else for the time being.
