Lyon president Aulas admits 'immense disappointment' with Juventus chief Agnelli

Lyon president Jean Michel Aulas has hit out at Juventus' Andrea Agnelli over the Super League.

Aulas is concerned about now dealing with Agnelli given his behaviour.

"I discussed it with UEFA President [Aleksander] Ceferin in Montreux," he told L'Equipe. “I told him that on Sunday I had tried to call Andrea Agnelli and that he didn't answer me.

“It's a situation that makes us uncomfortable because he had our full confidence and I myself was very close to him.

“There was a personal and professional relationship. The way it happened surprises even more than the action, and there's immense disappointment for the man.

“I wanted him to tell us, Saturday or Sunday, that something was going to happen. He certainly had good reasons, but we weren't aware of it and now he has created a real problem.

“I have the feeling that I have been deceived."
