Speaking on RMC Sport, Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas was asked about the future of manager Rudi Garcia, whose contract expires in June.
“This is a topic that is often brought up. I have said that we will take a position on it between now and the end of the season… It is not on the menu for the moment. We (the board) meet on the 31st December. I hope that we will be in 1st place at that point, so that we can look at things in a different way.”
“Rudi knows it, I speak often with him. He is totally in agreement with me to show things on the pitch and through the performances of the team we could eventually look at something.”
Asked at the end of the interview whether speculation was correct that it is very unlikely that Garcia would be offered a new contract, Aulas said: “You often have the right information.”
