Bayern Munich coach Louis van Gaal has criticised Lyon for rescheduling their fixtures to ahead of their Champions League semi-final.

Van Gaal is considering making a formal complaint to Uefa after it emerged that Lyon had been granted a fixture reschedule to allow them more time to prepare for their encounter with Bayern.

Lyon were due to meet Monaco on 24th April but the French Football Association has allowed the club to move that game back until May.

Van Gaal says it is unfair that Lyon have been allowed such a change when his side have to play Borussia Monchengladbach just three days before their trip to France.

“I will be asking my director of sport Christian Nerlinger to request that Uefa forbid the French FA from making this postponement and to reverse it,” he told Tz.

“The French FA thinks that this gesture makes it easier for Olympique to reach the final and I think they are right.

“Uefa has got to keep an eye on and regulate things like this. That is no longer fair play.”

Should the change be allowed to stand, Lyon will now face Monaco on 12th May and will have no competitive games in between the two legs with Bayern.

“If Uefa organise competitions, then they have got to ensure that the conditions are the same and that is no longer the case,” added Van Gaal.

“Obviously it is not possible for them to assert that everybody plays on the same day and I can understand that, but to put a game back so far is a different thing altogether.

“That should not be allowed.”
