Olympique Lyonnais categorically denies the remarks of journalist Edward Jay, who said on RMC that Jérôme SEYDOUX and Jean-Michel AULAS had decided to put an end to the contract of Claude PUEL at a breakfast taken made before the Board of Directors of the club met on Tuesday morning.
The reality is that the Board of Directors met on Tuesday at the headquarters of the club to finalise the group's annual accounts. Claude Puel, who attended the council as usual, made a report on the sports situation and analyzed the difficulties of this start to the season.
The Board of Directors has unanimously confirmed its adherence to the sports development strategy put in place by Jean-Michel AULAS and entrusted to Claude PUEL.
Jean-Michel AULAS has insisted that all components of the club work together behind Claude PUEL and the professional group, specifically requesting the Director General Philippe SAUZE to unite the efforts of all to allow the club to get past this delicate sporting situation in the interest of and service to the institution Olympique Lyonnais.
