PARIS (AP) – Lyon and Claude Puel have failed to settle their differences during a mediation session, likely ending the coach's tenure at the French league club.
Puel and Lyon officials met in Paris under the supervision of the French league juridical commission on Wednesday. The head of the commission, Andre Soulier, said both parties failed to agree on a common future and that the club is now entitled to end its relationship with Puel.
Soulier said the juridical commission ''ratified the divorce decision between both parties.''
Lyon hasn't won any silverware since Puel took over from Alain Perrin, who led Lyon to the league and French Cup double in 2007-08.
Puel has a year left on his contract.
