Foot OL – OL: For Grosso, Aulas accepts a truce with Textor – Olympique Lyonnais

In conflict with John Textor, Jean-Michel Aulas has finally validated a decision of his successor. The former president of Olympique Lyonnais says he is delighted with the appointment of coach Fabio Grosso, who officially signed up this Saturday with the Rhone club.

John Textor offered himself a more peaceful context. At the start of the week, the owner of Olympique Lyonnais, who had agreed with Laurent Blanc to part ways during the international break, seemed set to appoint Gennaro Gattuso. Several sources revealed an imminent agreement between the American and the Italian coach. But the numerous criticisms inside and outside the Rhone club have apparently cooled John Textor.

Fabio Grosso validated

The boss of Eagle Football then studied other avenues until coming across Fabio Grosso who, for his part, garnered many more positive opinions. The former left back of Les Gones officially signed up with Olympique Lyonnais this Saturday and can already count on significant support such as that of Juninho, Grégory Coupet and even Jean-Michel Aulas!

« It’s a nice surprise to find you Fabio at the head of our OLcommented the former Lyon president on the social network You haven’t changed, elegant and caring: I wish you and the entire OL family great success in Lyon and results to match those you obtained as an OL player from 2007 to 2009. »

In Lyon, Fabio Grosso enriched his record with a Champions Trophy (2007), a Ligue 1 title (2008) and a Coupe de France coronation the same year. So many arguments which may have weighed in the balance at the time of the choice of John Textor, who we imagine surprised by the validation of Jean-Michel Aulas. Remember that the two men became enemies after the ousting of the second last May. Since then, JMA has not hesitated to take the American to court.
