the new owner has not arrived yet


Despite the promises of beautiful summer, a change of ownership is slow to unfold in the capital of Gaul. John Textor never paid Olympique Lyonnais a penny.

There is no doubt that Jean-Michel Aulas has seen better days. After seven days in the league, Olympique Lyonnais finished fifth in the French league. It is an honorable classification but conceals a less encouraging fact. Thus, the Reds and Blues maintained two consecutive defeats and Peter Boss has never been so criticized by the fans.

The transfer window presented by Olympique also seems to raise questions. The lack of defensive reinforcements has been brutalized in recent encounters with the unfortunate mistakes of Thiago Mendes. Unfortunately, this is not the only problem that the Lyon coach has to deal with at the moment. Because at the same time, the change of owner is slow.

Confidence still prevails in spite of everything

But this summer, John Textor received quite a bit of press hype. It seems that the arrival of this American businessman made it possible to envision a new beginning for a club in serious decline. But weeks go by and the transition is delayed. as shown the teamTextor has not made any payment yet to initiate the purchase. The newspaper states that no deadline has been set until September 30.

So there are only two weeks left to speed things up seriously and quickly. However, confidence will still exist within the Lyon crew. Thus we learn from the same source that Jean-Michel Aulas and John Textor talk to each other daily. Another sign that the future owner intends to deliver on his promises, it has already been announced that he and his family will be attending Paris Saint-Germain’s welcome at Groupama Stadium on Sunday.
