Blue: Aulas sharply criticizes Deacon

Paris – "I find that Corinne Deacon has left the institutional and professional framework": in an interview with L'Equipe, Jean-Michel Aulas, President of Olympique Lyonnais and member of the Executive Committee of the Federation, defends the selection of Bleues, to whom he blames his comments on the attacker OL Eugénie Le Sommer.

"Do you realize if people from the OL had publicly said what they know about what happened during this team preparation in France? It's inconceivable and we'll be careful not to do it", adds the Lyon leader in the sports daily that appears Wednesday.

Corinne Dacre had estimated Sunday on TF1 that the Lyonnaise Eugénie Le Sommer had not respected his instructions during the World Cup: "Even I told him: why do you stay left? The idea was not that. Our game project, it was not that".

His remarks made cringe in Lyon, including those of the president of the club of supporters OL Ang'Elles, Isabelle Bernard, who was moved by the AFP. "The players do not dare to say anything publicly for fear of losing their place in the selection (…) To say that Eugenie does not follow, it is false. It was his game plan that was foolish. And get out like this in the press, without talking to the players before, they can not mentally"she says.


The Blue, who were aiming for the final of their World Cup at home, were eliminated in the quarter by the United States (2-1). The President of the Federation Noël Le Graët has confirmed Corinne Deacon, whose contract runs until Euro-2021.
