New G14 president Jean-Michel Aulas is determined to increase the influence of European football´s elite clubs.

The Lyon supremo´s election victory could lead to a huge swelling of G14 numbers as the Frenchman seeks to secure a stronger voice for his members. The organisation was launched with 14 clubs in 2000, took on four new members in 2002 and will now consider inviting a further 16 teams to join.

"We looked at the principle of expanding the G14 and I was only prepared to become the new president if everyone was in agreement," said Aulas, who takes over from former Arsenal vice-chairman David Dein, at a meeting in Glasgow.
