Olympique Lyonnais will live a second consecutive year without the Champions League, but Jean-Michel Aulas is not the type to give up in his ambitions.
Jean-Michel Aulas admitted that after his Olympique Lyonnais defeated OGC Nice on Matchday 38 of Ligue 1, he seriously considered throwing in the towel. Even if it is hard to believe this version, the OL boss still had to take an uppercut when he saw Rudi Garcia and his team fail to grab a ticket for the Champions League which held out his arms to him. Three weeks later, JMA has already bounced back and is back in the ring, comforted as he is by the signing of Peter Bosz. Because the Dutch coach ticks all the boxes for Lyon, and in addition he has already put the supporters in the pocket, which is no small feat. With all this, Jean-Michel Aulas is pumped up and is already planning for the seasons to come
Asked this Wednesday on the sidelines of the inauguration of the OL Vallée leisure center, the president of Olympique Lyonnais admitted that his ambitions were still high. ” It is not because OL Groupe has done a certain number of other things that we will not leave the football activity at the center of our activity. OL is a football club, we are working on its structure in order to regain a league title as quickly as possible (…) The objective is also to touch the biggest clubs in Europe and who knows how to go and win a European Cup, which we have been looking for for a little over ten years now “, Noted Jean-Michel Aulas, who has already forgotten his little bit of depression and wants to let it be known.
