Lyon president advises patience for PSG

After patiently building Lyon into a major football force, club president Jean-Michel Aulas has advised Paris Saint-Germain's Qatari owners to keep cool heads as the capital club goes through a rough patch.

• Lucho: Pastore neeeds confidence
• Blog: Knives out already for Carlo PSG slipped up 2-1 at Nice last weekend to drop five points behind league leaders Lyon, provoking fierce speculation over the future of coach Carlo Ancelotti and even sporting director Leonardo.

Aulas, who over two decades turned Lyon from second division also-rans into seven-time Ligue 1 champions, believes a knee-jerk reaction to the PSG's troubles is not the answer. "If I could offer some advice, it would be that I wouldn't change anything given the quality of the players at Paris and the level of investment made," he said. "It's always difficult to succeed when you want to do things quickly.

"Sporting success, like success in business, is a lot more legitimate when it's built over the middle-term and long-term. Paris will be competitive in the Champions League this season, so they absolutely must not change anything even if in the league, it's more difficult. I trust the Qatari owners to take the right decisions to restore calm."
