Jean-Michel Aulas is well and truly preparing for his outing in Lyon!

Zapping But! Soccer club OL: the complete list of Les Gones

Currently in discussion with four possible shareholders supposed to take over the shares of Pathé and IDG Capital, Jean-Michel Aulas (73) hopes to conclude this file by June 23.

If he has already announced that he will still be the president of the club next season and for a few more years, the former boss of Cegid – who celebrated his 35 years at the head of OL – is indeed thinking retired. A retirement he had already mentioned last April after the incidents between the Bad Gones and Karl Toko-Ekambi.

JMA increasingly considers retirement with family

In an interview with Téléfoot this Sunday, Jean-Michel Aulas spoke of his succession. A moment when he “thinks” more and more:

“It would be absolutely not rational at 73 not to imagine it. I also tell myself that there is a family behind it, there are people I love to whom I also owe it to myself to be closer to them, so in the future you have to be ready to pass the hand on the day when things are going to be done”.

Aulas ready to bow out?

If it is excluded that he will leave Lyon this summer despite the arrival of a new American shareholder, Jean-Michel Aulas confirms that he is thinking more and more about his succession at the head of OL. At 73, the leader wants to spend time with family.
