Lyon claims to resume activity like the Bundesliga (Reuters)

The Ligue 1 he is for now the only one of the great men’s soccer championships to have decided to end the season. The German Bundesliga, for example, has already set the date of May 16 to resume the tournament and the English Premier League and the Spanish League intend to finish the course, from a date yet to be decided. More indecisive is the resumption of the Italian Serie A, although the leaders and the clubs are working for the return of football.

Olympique de Lyon this Sunday called in a statement to reverse the decision to cancel Ligue 1 to avoid a huge disaster for the French championship: “How can we guarantee that all French clubs will be able to finish the year without breaking? How to fight with nuthose foreign competitors, the vast majority of whom have wisely chosen to wait to resume their championships? How can we prevent the difference from growing even further between French football and all the other great countries in Europe? ”Lyon is questioned in the statement.

For several weeks, Lyon’s president Jean-Michel Aulas has been fighting against the decision of French football leaders to cancel what was missing in the season due to the health risks derived from the COVID-19 pandemic: “There is time, until May 25, to back down and avoid the French championship a huge disaster”, warns Lyon, highlighting the economic losses that will weaken French clubs and their loss of competitiveness compared to other teams in Europe.

The detractors of Lyon consider that what the club is looking for above all is the classification for a European competition next season, since when Ligue 1 was suspended, the team was seventh, a position that it has maintained with the cancellation of the tournament and, for therefore, outside of Europe’s positions.

In France everybody professional sports were suspended until September by the Government and the Ligue 1 she was forced to close the 2019/20 season when there were still 10 games to go. Despite this measure and because mathematically it was not yet possible, the Paris Saint Germain (PSG) was recognized as champion and has added a new trophy to its windows.

“The Board of Directors unanimously decided to award the title of Ligue 1 Conforama champion to Paris Saint-Germain and the title of Domino’s Ligue 2 to FC Lorient in the 2019/2020 season”, communicated the body that regulates the two main categories of French football, which also specified that “He has decided to adopt two promotions and two descents between Ligue 1 and Ligue 2”.

Furthermore, the LFP confirmed that there will be play-off promotion to Ligue 1, so the Nîmes remains officially in the first division and teams like Clermont, Troyes or Ajaccio, who were fighting to be his rival, will stay in the second division next year. However, the measures will be debated again on May 20.
