Classrooms confirms that Lyon tried to sign Ribéry in summer

The president of Olympique de Lyon has granted an interview to BeIN Sports in which he states that Juninho tried to bring the Frenchman back to Ligue 1.


Franck Ribéry could be an Olympique de Lyon player at the moment. The French international, who finally decided to sign for Fiorentina, was the objective of the board of the OL throughout the summer market. In an interview with BeIN Sports, Jean-Michel Aulas, president of the club, has generated the information.

"Juninho (Lyon sports director) wanted to sign Ribéry this summer. In 2006, we were about to sign him, but finally the Olympique de Marseille returned to the charge for him and finally could not be done. But I would have liked to have Ribéry in Lyon, of course, "said Classrooms.

The main reason why Ribéry did not sign for Lyon was that he did not want to return to Ligue 1. The former Bayern has said in recent years that he would only return to the French championship to wear the Olympique de Marseille shirt. Although the economic conditions offered by Lyon were superior to those of Fiorentina, Ribéry decided to try in Italy.
