2021-10-13T06:14:55.331Z

The former basketball player of the France team, now president of ASVEL and very close to "JMA", does not hide his ambitions of one day succeeding him at Olympique Lyonnais.



The idea has been whispered for months and continues to gain ground.

Guest of the program “

En Aparté

” on Canal +, Tony Parker did not hide his desires to succeed one day to Jean-Michel Aulas at the head of Olympique Lyonnais.

In office since 1987, the omnipotent and very experienced boss of OL had already mentioned the subject in our columns in February 2020, without, again, beating around the bush.

To discover

  • Ligue 1 fixtures and results

  • League 1 standings

Tony ticks pretty much all the boxes

Jean-Michel Aulas on Tony Parker at Le Figaro

To read also Succession of Jean-Michel Aulas: "

Tony Parker ticks almost all the boxes

"

Tony ticks just about all the boxes,

he whispered to us about the former San Antonio Spurs point guard, now ASVEL president. O

ur next president-manager Tony

has the profile. He's younger, with an international image, he's a good guy. The one who will buy back OL when I should leave, either because I would have won the European Cup and the championship again, or because I would be called to other functions, he will have to be accompanied by a shareholder who will dub him. It is premature to say what one can imagine. I get along very well with Tony and he will be a very renowned entrepreneur. ”

I hope that Jean-Michel will be with us for a very long time to come.

And the day he wants someone to succeed him, I hope he will be proud if he wants it to be me.

Anyway, I'm getting ready

Tony Parker

In front of the cameras of Canal +, and already questioned on the subject, Tony Parker went a little further in his personal reflection.

Why not (take over from Jean-Michel Aulas at OL).

He talked about it a lot in the media last year, I try to learn every day, he

admits with a smile.

I love football, I love basketball.

Now, Asvel and OL are the same family.

OL entered our capital for two and a half years and things are going very well.

It pushes all the teams to the top.

I know that OL have ambitions to be known at the world level, that's why my role as club ambassador is very important in the US and in China.

I hope that Jean-Michel will be with us for a very long time to come.

And the day he wants someone to succeed him, I hope he will be proud if he wants it to be me.

In any case, I am preparing myself.
