Official Club Statement

Published on the 01 August 2006 à 21:00

Olympique Lyonnais was surprised by comments made by Marseille president Pape Diouf on Tuesday, referring to football club presidents as "puppets"

and it considers these comments undignified of the president of a great football club.

The club would like to state that it treats every football club president with the utmost respect, whoever they may be, and despite certain sporting rivalries that may exist between the clubs.
