Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has hinted that retired basketball star Tony Parker could replace him at some point the future.

Aulas, 71, has spoken in the past of his intention to retire at the age of 75 and Parker is president of ASVEL Basket -- France's top-flight champions and most decorated team.

However, while he suggested Parker could eventually take over from him, Aulas made it clear he is not thinking of stepping down any time soon.
