L 'Olympique Lyonnais, must prevail Saturday at the game of Guingamp on the 13th day of the League 1. Otherwise …
Thursday, after the draw just before Hoffenheim (2-2) in the Champions League, the president of OL Jean-Michel Aulas, as in every difficult moment, wore the habit of the first defender of the club of the Rhone . While he wanted to underline the importance of Genesio's "tactical options," he quickly evoked "a lack of trust among the players that needs to be addressed". "We stopped playing," when the Lyon team led two goals, he noted. But he quickly diverted the "negative" environment around the OL, in "single against all" mode. "Listening to constant criticisms that are not all justified, players can be hit, in any case more than the president, who has some experience," he said. "We have to stop dramatising, the media make their articles and their articles about what is wrong, but OL is 4th in the French league, four lengths behind the second, and we are, after the fourth game, in the race to qualify for the 16 Champions League round, "he continued.
Tanguy Ndombélé reformed by Aulas
In this register, Jean-Michel Aulas returned to the attack on Thursday on Twitter, his preferred communication tool. "OL does not deserve this determination: OL 6 points, 2nd PSG 5 points and 3rd ASM 1 point, players need confidence, help us rather than dirty," he said. But he also intervened with his players, which makes Bruno Genesio say that he and his president "do not eliminate anyone". Thus, Tanguy Ndombélé, guilty of nonchalance against Bordeaux, has been publicly re-formulated by JMA since Saturday for not being "interested enough". And the reaction was vigorous against Hoffenheim with a good performance of the new national team.
Fekir package in Guingamp
"When we are in a rather negative context, when we focus on what does not work, there can be an impact on the mind, the players are mostly men," said the technician on Friday at a press conference. "There are two readings of a game, positive or negative, it's up to me to change the situation," he said. When in his personal case, Genesio, the privileged objective of a segment of the Lyon public that ends up conditioning a larger part, says "get used to it". "I saw it very well," he replied to the second degree. "I'm used to it now, but I did not start taking the team that I was already the man to shoot, and I live pretty well even if it was difficult at the beginning." I took a step back, "he said. On Thursday, he had agreed that only a victory would give everyone moral. And just before the international truce, a success would be welcome. It will be without Nabil Fekir. The playmaker and captain OL are confiscated to go to Guingamp because of the pain of the adductors.
