Aulas hints at Lyon new boss

Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas has hinted that there a few names on the shortlist for potential replacements for Alain Perrin. One is that of Laurent Blanc, who coaches close rivals Bordeaux.

"In France alone we have three names: Laurent Blanc, Claude Puel and Didier Deschamps," he said.

"The first two are under contract (with Bordeaux and Lille respectively), the latter is not.

"We have other options abroad. If Perrin has to leave then we won't be left wanting."
