This should put a piece back in the machine of the debates around the premature cancellation of Ligue 1 according to several club presidents with Jean-Michel Aulas, that of Olympic Lyon at the head of the gondola. While the boss of the Gones replied to Aleksander Ceferin, the president of UEFA, and argued that it was possible that the Ligue 1 would end in the form of play-offs in July, the European body went into its sense a little later this Saturday, while reminding that August 2 is the deadline to finish the domestic championships.
Contacted by Le Parisien this Saturday, UEFA confirmed JMA’s latest statements by explaining that the LFP could, if it took the decision to resume the French Championship, organize the end of the season in the form it wanted, and therefore potentially play-offs. The governing body of European football also reminded the daily that “the decision of the French authorities to cancel the season was taken relatively early” according to him. It remains to be seen whether the Council of State, approached by Olympic Lyon, Amiens SC and Toulouse FC, will open the door to this possibility. The order will be made Monday or Tuesday at the latest. We shall be following this report daily.
