French club Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has called on the government to reconsider its decision to end the football season soon.
The French League One and League Two were canceled on April 28 due to the Corona virus epidemic. In a letter to the French prime minister and sports minister, Lyons president Aulas said French football could face “incredible social and economic crises”.
Leon was in seventh place when the season was called off and even lost the European qualifiers.Of the top five leagues in Europe, French Ligue 1 is the only one to be canceled in the middle of the season. In addition, the German Bundesliga has resumed. Spain, Italy and England are also preparing to resume the league in June.
The leagues of Europe’s Netherlands and Belgium have been canceled.”The Bundesliga starts on 16 May, with Spain starting on 8 June. Group training has also begun in Italy, Russia and Portugal, and England are set to start the game after June 19, “said Aulas.” How can France just cancel so quickly and devalue professional football here?
The French government is expected to announce that it will ease looting in the country from June 2. ‘A lot of events and hopes are expected on that date.
So that France can pick up speed, ‘said Aulas. Amiens and Toulouse, who were relegated along with Lyon last year, have appealed against the end of the Ligue 1 season.
