Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas revealed speaking to RMC tonight that he once attempted to lure José Mourinho to become the club’s new manager.
“You know, I tried to bring Mourinho in two or three years ago. But we didn’t have the means to pull it off. Contacts? Yes, absolutely. I do not want to go into detail, but we were not in the same world. I had known him previously in other circumstances relating to transfers. He has an agent that I know very well. It did not go very far, but I had the idea that it was possible.”
