While anger is brewing among Lyon supporters, Jean-Michel Aulas has taken to Twitter to defend his coach.
The match played on Sunday against Rennes served as an outlet for Lyon supporters. Only a few days after the elimination against Nantes in the semi-finals of the Coupe de France, the fans of Les Gones severely reprimanded their team and its coach, Laurent Blanc. Marks of challenge to which Jean-Michel Aulas responded, also challenged, wanted to respond on Twitter on Monday.
« When I read that Laurent Blanc and the winter transfer window would not have improved the team, I discovered, not in the press, but through enthusiasts that Olympique Lyonnais is tied for first in the return phase with Paris and Reims, while we were 9th in the first phase, he wrote in particular. Of the real situation, you are already deprived of it by the Prime Minister, and you take responsibility for it. »
« The objective analysis shows that this data will not change the face of this season which has started so badly, we can however foresee a future where it is possible to build on these bases with Laurent and his teams, he continued. The players know it, we talked about it, we must remain mobilized for the future: match after match, this end of the season. We must support all the players who want to fight to find the heights and in particular the youngest, because it is under the encouragement that they will obtain the best results and not the whistles of which the sirens who want to lure them into their nets. As a family, we have sometimes argued, we are often angry, but in the end we love each other and we love this club too much to take the responsibility of destroying it through our excesses. »
The future of OL, for those who love it and build it, is not played on punchlines, but on a reality and we will be even stronger together for those who want it 🔴🔵 pic.twitter.com/S1y5twnRQP
