Removed from the presidency of Olympique Lyonnais last May, Jean-Michel Aulas remains very up to date with club news and never misses an opportunity to express himself on X (formerly Twitter). Skilled in regularly tackling his American successor John Textor, the former boss of Les Gones this time responded to a supporter, who invited the social network to withdraw his access codes, to take stock of his situation… and express his suffering for OL, in great sporting difficulty after six days of Ligue 1.

“Of course, I’m resting,” JMA said. I am with a beautiful family: I work at the Comex of the FFF, on the council of the LFP, I am president of Holnest with my son and around forty very successful companies, I participate in the development of world women’s football and I suffer also for OL.”

This tweet followed another message posted earlier in the day about the sale of the club to Textor, a choice questioned by a Lyon fan. “Yes, I wanted to pass it on to a powerful investor who was going to do everything I had not been able to do since the arrival of the Qataris (at PSG in 2011, editor’s note): invest hundreds of millions in a very big team. F.Gillett was ready to do it. John Textor, chosen by Raine, wanted me to stay for three years!” replied Aulas, who would have preferred to give the keys to the Rhone truck to Foster Gillett, another American businessman. This was not the case and since then, the historic president of Lyon has not lost a bit of the actions of Textor, with whom the rag has been burning for several weeks.
