Frustrated at the moment at OL with increasingly recurrent departure rumors and a premature exit against Ajaccio, Houssem Aouar is nonetheless a lover of the club. He dreams of following the trajectory of Karim Benzema before him.
The darling of Lyon training is going through a more complicated period on the banks of the Rhône. Houssem Aouar is closer than ever to the end at OL, five years after his professional debut. The young midfielder is not really retained by the Lyon club, which sees in him the possibility of recovering a few million euros to complete the budget. Will Aouar soon be transferred? At Betis Seville or elsewhere? In any case, one thing is certain, he is no longer an irremovable part of the Rhone locker room. Not always established during friendly preparation matches, he suffered the affront of being released after 30 minutes against Ajaccio to compensate for the exclusion of Lopes.
For Aouar, Benzema is the best player in the history of OL
A heartbreaking ending for the player trained at OL. Houssem Aouar loves his club, loves his city and above all knows its history. As a kid who followed the rise of Lyon in the 2000s, he was particularly marked by Karim Benzema. The man who was the best player and top scorer in Ligue 1 during the 2007-2008 season, the last to see OL crowned champion of France. Asked about his relationship with the club by The Square MediaAouar delivered the name of the Real Madrid striker when asked about the best player in the history of his club.
Lewandowski 💬: “Benzema is an incredible player, he showed it last season in the Champions League. He’s been in La Liga for years, I don’t want to compare myself to him. For me, it’s a new challenge to come here.” pic.twitter.com/GG3NeNn4kp

“ Benzema because he has accomplished so much in such a short time at OL and above all for everything he has done elsewhere. He’s really an example to follow and we’ve seen that at times it didn’t go so well in Madrid and it was all down to his mind, the fact that he never gave up. And now we see where it is “, he confided. An example that Aouar would like to follow, especially at OL where Benzema has won several major titles including a league and cup double. However, not sure that Aouar has time to accomplish this when his departure could take place in the coming days.
