Two years after his departure from OL, Juninho could well make his return to the Lyon organization chart at the request of John Textor. Having not hesitated to tackle the Brazilian since their separation, Jean-Michel Aulas nevertheless appears enthusiastic about this idea.

And if the long-awaited return of Juninho by the supporters was finally a reality? It’s still too early to tell, but the Brazilian spoke well with John Weaver as argued by The Team and confirmed by Olympique-et-Lyonnais. The discussions would revolve around an advisory role, a far cry from his role as sports director occupied between June 2019 and December 2021. Seeing Juninho return to the OL organization chart inevitably brings an element of excitement to the Lyon environment. even if the role suggested nevertheless leaves one wondering about his daily decision-making power. Even Jean-Michel Classes seems to validate the idea of ​​a return of the former OL captain. “If this is confirmed, it is a very good initiative and we must consider a solution so that Juni has operational powers. Is that what he wants, it seems to me?”wrote the French leader on his X account (formerly Twitter).

A surprising outing since the two men have not necessarily been on good terms since the end of their collaboration two years ago. The former president of theOLlike a disappointed father, had not failed to criticize on numerous occasions certain failed works of Juninho like the appointment of Sylvinho to take over from Bruno Genesio in the summer of 2019. Aulas even had harsh words last January, going so far as to consider the return of Juninho as “my first mistake in human resources strategy by giving an extremely broad delegation of sporting power to Juni. It didn’t work.” No longer in decision-making power, “JMA” seems to have since changed its mind.
