Jean-Michel Aoulas, President of Lyon

Noel Le Great, president of the French Football Federation (FFF), believes Lyon chief Jean-Michel Aoules has “gone a little too far” in his recent criticism.

Aulus is unhappy with the decision to cancel the rest of the League 1 season due to the coronavirus epidemic as Leon are seventh in the table.

Luয়োn’s president thinks officials have closed the rest of the campaign too soon, the Bundesliga has resumed and is still trying to restart the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A.

But Le Great believes that Aulus’ criticism has gone too far, telling Khal: “We’ve known each other for so long. He sees me coming, I see him coming.

“On the other hand, he sometimes defends his club’s interests with too much emphasis. Lately he’s gone a little too far.

“I told him by phone or in the press, but he was caught red-handed playing in the Champions League.”

Lyon are still in the last 16 of the Champions League and the final of the C লাpe d’Ivoire.
