This is proof that the situation is very worrying from a sporting point of view and not only at Olympique Lyonnais. John Textor and Jean-Michel Aulas have buried the hatchet, at least publicly, to call for a sacred union around OL. The current owner, who is very critical of the management of former president Aulas, to whom he has regularly blamed the sanctions of the DNCG and the consequences on the summer transfer window, shared on social networks the call for the sacred union of the former boss of the Rhone club.
"Reviving OL's DNA"
"The truth is that internally, at OLG (OL Groupe), some people are constantly trying to oppose me to John Textor by inventing and taking initiatives that will soon be sanctioned: the time has come to agree with JT (John Textor) to allow OL to revive OL's DNA. Please stop these ignominies," Jean-Michel Aulas wrote on his X account (ex-Twitter) in response to information from a journalist about the quarrels that continued between the two men.
Go OL!❤️💙🦁 https://t.co/BEPdRIeu5Z
