Without claiming a sanction, Jean-Michel Aulas believes that the founding members of the Super League will not be able to act as if nothing had happened after the bitter failure of the project.
Jean-Michel Aulas does not want to pass in the towel so quickly. The president of Olympique Lyonnais believes in an interview, published this Wednesday evening by The team, that the founding clubs of the Super League will face legitimate mistrust from the rest of European football. He considers that it will not be possible for the leaders in question to return “as if nothing had happened” in the instances.
“It will never be the same again. We must ensure, if their return is made, that there is a long-term commitment not to see them launch again in this type of initiative”, warns Jean-Michel Aulas, who therefore evokes Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City, Tottenham, AC Milan, Inter, Juventus, Atlético de Madrid, FC Barcelona and Real Madrid.
“Solutions so that this does not happen again”
“It will be time to find solutions so that this does not happen again, also declares the President of Lyon. I do not know whether sanctions are necessary. It is not for me to say. But it is now necessary to on their part a respect for the values of football. “
Jean-Michel Aulas specifies in any case having “read attentively” the words of Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, big boss of Bayern Munich, favorable to the creation of “bridges despite the walls”. He also says he shares the position of UEFA president Aleksandr Ceferin, who wants to “reach out to rebuild”.
Before this interview, Jean-Michel Aulas had spoken on his Twitter account to denounce this project of a semi-closed European league and to greet “the osmosis” with his Parisian counterpart Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, on the front line against the twelve mutineers .
