Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas believes the powers in French football are conspiring against his club in a bid to prevent them becoming Ligue 1 champions for a seventh successive year.

Les Gones played with 10 men for the entire second half against Caen on Saturday after Fabio Grosso was dismissed for a half-time altercation with Yoann Gouffran in the tunnel, but still claimed a 2-2 draw to maintain their four-point lead at the summit.

Aulas was livid that left-back Grosso was given his marching orders away from the field of play, and felt it was just another example of league officials ganging up on his club, saying: "This is getting too much. I know that all the powers do not want Lyon to be champions but to throw at us a sending-off from the dressing room, you can´t go that far."
