Lyon, Toulouse, and Amiens have protested the premature end of the season. A Paris court rejected a clubs’ lawsuit.
A short time ago, the French clubs Lyon, Toulouse, and Amiens protested the end of the season 10 rounds earlier.
As you know, in April, the Prime Minister of France officially confirmed the premature completion of League 1, League 2, and also, other sports events.
So, the prizes were distributed according to the results of 28 rounds. Accordingly, Paris Saint-Germain have won the title ahead of schedule.
With the premature end of the championship, Lyon suffered the most, having been competing steadily in European tournaments for more than 20 years. They have been left without a European title for the first time in 20 years.
Jean-Michel Aulas is angry with the results.
As for Toulouse and Amiens, their demand was different. They were demanding to increase the number of teams to 22 in the upcoming championship, as in the current situation, their “reward” was to be relegated to League 2.
Thus, the Administrative Court of Paris did not satisfy the claim of these three clubs and, consequently, the old decision remains in force.
Lyon’s president, Jean-Michel Aulas, was dissatisfied with the final result and had a different opinion. Aulas believed the French championship should continue.
“We are going the wrong way. It is not too late. We see events happening in Europe. It’s somewhat political, “said Jean-Michel Aulas.
