Laurent Blanc in Lyon, Aulas ready to strike!

Jean-Michel Aulas gave Peter Bosz until February to straighten out the ranking of Olympique Lyonnais. And the OL boss admits to having a little idea to replace the Dutch coach.

This is not the first time that the name of Laurent Blanc has circulated on the side of Olympique Lyonnais since after the departure of Sylvinho, in October 2019, the former coach of Bordeaux, PSG and the France team had participated in a “casting” at the same time of Rudi Garcia and Jocelyn Gourvennec. But it was ultimately the former OM coach who had been selected with the results and the end that we know. Arrived this summer on the Lyon bench, and benefiting from an unusual hype, Peter Bosz is however struggling to make the Lyon team work, which is in 11th place in the Ligue 1 standings and is struggling to find its bearings. And this even if the Europa League gave a little color to the first part of the season. However, Jean-Michel Aulas knows that without a place in the Champions League at the end of the season, things will get complicated for OL financially. So, a few weeks after having fixed an ultimatum to Peter Bosz, the boss of Olympique Lyonnais repeated in an interview with Europe 1, which will be broadcast this weekend, but of which Le Progrès has already had large extracts.

Laurent Blanc after Peter Bosz? Why not ?

And the least we can say is that Jean-Michel Aulas is not beating around the bush concerning the post of coach of “his” OL. ” If I still think of Laurent Blanc? Yes, I think about it. At the time, I was in solidarity with Juninho to take Rudi Garcia. Laurent Blanc is a boy with incomparable experience. I had seen him for a long time in Russia during the World Cup. I had felt this capacity in him. Things did not happen. But do you ever know? (…) Peter Bosz, it’s tough. But there is no result to match. We said “we will continue until the end of February to see what happens” but in my mind, we are not going to put ourselves in danger (…) We will not be idiots “, Warns very clearly the president of Olympique Lyonnais, who confirms not wanting to leave his place in the coming years despite his 72 years.
