The OL president still cannot digest the decision to end the Ligue 1 season due to the health crisis.
Jean-Michel Aulas does not give up. The government’s decision to end the 2019-20 Ligue 1 season outright due to the Covid-19 health crisis was premature, he said. “I have consulted a lot in the past two days with politicians, soccer men, lawyers. First, there was a political error. Why rush to say that it is difficult to play before August? So we don’t know if the other countries will have the same judgment … We had to take a political tour of the other four major leagues. The France of sport is like the France of companies, it is in competition. We should not rush into politics if we are not sure that the others are not doing the same, “confides the OL president in The teamthis Monday.
Aulas denies insulting Eyraud
Clinging to his idea of ending the season in August via new play-offs – “UEFA had put us on the track with the play-offs (…) What I wanted was that it didn’t stop . Because it will cost everyone a lot, including the League ”-, Aulas hopes to see French football reverse this decision. “I call for these decisions to be taken up again at the general assembly (this Monday) or that of May 23 (…) Why are the other European clubs fighting to end their season and have been authorized to do so? We are hanging ourselves with our decisions, ”he insists.
Finally, the OL boss denies having insulted his Marseille counterpart Jacques-Henri Eyraud. “There were no insults to the Board with Eyraud as Raymond Domenech said. He (Eyraud) made a pamphlet in the JDDextremely serious which will be the subject of a defamation complaint. When my dignity and my human qualities are attacked (in this article), I reply. ”
