Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas said he will not be rushed into making a decision on whether to sack coach Claude Puel after the French club’s disastrous start to the season.
“We’re not going to rush into changing everything on a whim,” Aulas told the Telefoot television programme on Sunday, a day after watching his team lose 1-0 to regional rivals St Etienne.
The result left Lyon, which hit the woodwork three times and had two shots cleared off the line, second-bottom in the Ligue 1 standings and the spotlight squarely on Puel, who has failed to win a trophy since joining the hugely successful club in 2008.
“We’ve recruited well over the last two years and we’ll examine things after 10 matches in the championship and three in the Champions League,” Aulas said.
“We’ll then have a very precise idea of what’s going to happen.”
Lyon now turn their attention to a tricky away Champions League match against Hapoel Tel-Aviv on Wednesday.
