French club Lyon continued its struggle in the face of the decision to cancel the current season of the French Football League, as head of the club Jean-Michel Olas proposed in a letter to French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe published today, Monday, that the training should be gradually allowed to resume next month.
Olas also called for the resumption of the current 2019/2020 French season events in July or August.
Olas said in the message, which the club confirmed that it had also sent to French Sports Minister Roxana Marasignano, that the clubs will incur heavy financial losses, explaining that the financial losses of the clubs will range between 700 and 900 million euros.
“The financial situation of the French clubs is awful,” Olas said.
The French League in early May decided to end the season early and not complete its activities due to the crisis of the outbreak of the newly infected Corona virus, which stopped the competition since mid-March.
The association also decided to crown the French Paris Saint-Germain with the title.
The decision to cancel the remainder of the season came after the Prime Minister confirmed that it is not possible to resume playing this season.
The competition was suspended after the 28th stage of the competition, and Lyon was among the most affected by the decision to cancel the season.
