Following the defeat of his club, Jean-Michel Aulas sent a message to the League. He asks for a real revolution in arbitration!
Defeated 2 to 1 by the Paris Saint Germain during the 6th day of Ligue 1, theOlympique Lyonnais may feed some regrets. Leading through an achievement of Lucas Paqueta, the Gones then lost the keys to the meeting by receiving a disputed penalty on Neymar followed by a goal of Mauro Icardi in additional time (93rd). Disappointed by the outcome of the match, Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas and his players believe they have suffered an injustice on the penalty whistled against Malo Gusto.

Aulas calls for a revolution
The thinking head of OL has not digested this penalty which he considers a real injustice. This Monday morning, Jean-Michel Aulas also sent a message, via his social networks, to the LFP as well as to the French Football Federation. It calls for transparent arbitration, like what can be done in other sports such as rugby.
« It is time for football refereeing to make a revolution, to be transparent: the only solution is to have referees with open microphones, like in rugby, just like VAR exchanges. Why refuse to see Neymar’s double fault which leads to the downfall of Mr. Gusto? »
If open microphones become the norm in football, spectators risk discovering the underside of discussions between referees and players. One way to impose more respect between the actors and the refereeing body.
@FFF @LFPfr It is time for football refereeing to make its revolution, to be transparent: the only solution is to have referees with open microphones, like in rugby, just like VAR exchanges. Why refuse to see Neymar’s double fault? which brings about the downfall of Mr. Gusto?
