Olympique Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas believes that his club should follow the example of last season’s Ajax in the Champions League. The French are playing in the eighth finals of the billiard ball against Juventus and Olympique Lyon must now become the stunt club.
Opposite Le Figaro the chairman spoke about Juventus. “Of course I’m afraid of Juventus. I am a great admirer of Ronaldo, Pjanic and Matuidi and I am also a fan of Rabiot. We wanted to get him this winter, but he just started playing at Juventus again. ”
Aulas thinks a good result from Olympique Lyon against Juventus can cause a turnaround at the French club. ‘It can be a turning point in our season and a turning point in the history of Lyon. Despite the many injuries and the poor performance in the competition, we are in the position I dreamed of. This is the time to legitimize all our investments. It is an opportunity to write history for Lyon. ”
Moreover, Olympique Lyon does not have to stand a chance against Juventus, says Aulas. After all, he saw RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund beat Tottenham Hotspur and Paris Saint-Germain last week. Ajax also serves as an example. ‘I saw Ajax knocking out Juventus last season and it is pretentious to say, I know this will be highlighted, but Lyon is Ajax in miniature. With lesser results than we want in the competition, but Lyon has what it takes to deliver a fantastic performance. ”
