José Mourinho turns down approach from Lyon

RMC report that Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas has contacted José Mourinho about the vacant managerial role, however the Portuguese tactician has turned down the opportunity.

A meeting with Laurent Blanc will be held in the coming days about possibly taking the role.

Aulas was in contact with Mourinho yesterday, but the manager decided to turn the proposal down, making it clear that he would like to take up a position soon notably in England, where his family is currently living.

Blanc remains the favourite and OL want to finalise their new coaching appointment before the beginning of next week.
