Zapping Foot National Top 10 Gambardella Cup winners
Jean-Michel Aulas dropped a huge bombshell about his future at OL on Saturday evening in the mixed zone after Les Gones’ success against Montpellier (5-2) marked by a very tense situation between Karl Toko Ekambi and the Ultras of OL, who wanted to do battle with the attacker, author of insults about them. With CRS having had to intervene after the match since the Cameroonian striker had heated the Ultras during the celebration of his goal and that the latter wanted to attack the player, the post-match was boiling and Aulas had ended up let go that if it was to continue in this way, then he preferred to leave the club. As L’Equipe explains, he, following his shock statement, had a discussion with the Ultras and the dialogue was much more peaceful.
Aulas applauded by the Ultras
Thus, the discussion between the two parties went very well given that the Ultras asked for an explanation of Toko Ekambi’s gesture and that Aulas was determined to rebuild a relationship of trust between all the players in the club. This is why he, like the supporters, calmed down and the exchange was cordial, with a Lyon president even being applauded at the end of this discussion.
The Ultras do not want to see Aulas go and that must have pleased the strongman of OL for more than 30 years. “We will take stock when necessary, but we must all be able to finish the season together”, would have confided the president of Les Gones, decided to live an end of the season where the support of the supporters for the players will be total. We can only hope that everyone leaves the tensions behind to seek European qualification.
