Olympique Lyonnais – Blanc: “There are players who are not happy in Lyon”

Ninth in Ligue 1, Lyon has already given up on its Champions League ambitions. Halfway through the season, it seems that the current exercise has already failed. The change of coach has not changed the dynamics and the players have continued to carry around their discomfort and their limits since August. What is the solution ? How can OL reverse the trend? Present at a press conference this Friday before the 16th final of the Coupe de France against Chambéry, Laurent Blanc did not embellish the picture.

His conclusion is harsh. “There are players who are not happy at Lyon, yet we do an extraordinary job and OL are a great clubrecognized White. We must not forget that the club is entitled to say that the players have a contract and that it cannot accede to all requests. But we take them into account. You can imagine what is happening behind the scenes, we are thinking about many, many, many cases.” Who is White targeting? Those who are frustrated by his match sheets: Romain Faivre, Moussa Dembélé, Damien Da Silva, Jerome Boateng, Jeff Reine-Adelaïde.

It could therefore be time for a big spring cleaning in the middle of January, just to breathe new life into a group that is languishing. “We have a reflection like all clubshe admits. Maybe more us because we had a first part of the season which is not good, but we are thinking. Will we have time? The 31 is coming very quickly. The more things you want to do if you have the means, the more time passes.“Lyon are looking for a player with personality, character and aggression in midfield. That could be 21-year-old Flamengo midfielder Joao Gomes.

Bruno Cheyrou has started discussions with the one also targeted by Wolverhampton. “I hope he will make sure to be known by the European media in a short timeWhite enthused. He has many qualities, he is a modern defensive midfielder who is not confined to his role, with an excess of function. He is a very good player and I advise you to go and see him. I like him because he is someone who is very solid defensively. Since I’ve been here, I find that we lack this defensive aggression. ” Could the transfer window be the remedy for the spleen in Lyon? It looks like a desperate solution in any case.
