The atmosphere is more tense than ever in Lyon, which remains on two defeats in a row at home in the league against Strasbourg and Clermont.
Saturday evening against Strasbourg, the atmosphere was extremely tense at Groupama Stadium after the new defeat of Olympique Lyonnais, stuck in the soft underbelly of the classification. Several players are targeted and this is particularly the case of Karl Toko-Ekambi, booed and who went directly to the locker room after being replaced by Laurent Blanc. Mad with rage, the Cameroonian international exploded a trash can in the spans of the stadium and the divorce seems consummated with the public. Other players are not immune to criticism: Moussa Dembélé, out of contract at the end of the season and who no longer puts one foot in front of the other, or Houssem Aouar, who has completely stagnated after a full start to his career. of promises. In the “After Lyon” podcast on RMC, Rolland Courbis gave his opinion on the players to join Olympique Lyonnais in the coming weeks.

And for the former coach of OM or even Montpellier, it is clear that the three undesirables from Groupama Stadium have had their day at OL and would do better to look elsewhere now. “Toko-Ekambi is an average player but certainly not a player made for Lyon. When he was whistled and started putting his finger in his mouth after his goals to respond to the fans, I still have the impression that he was seriously looking for trouble. Dembélé, who is struggling to make a correct flat foot, will leave at the end of the season and no one at OL will regret it, I think. Aouar who had the advantage of leaving the Lyon training center but we are still waiting for his progress and arrived at a certain moment, where we are no longer waiting and now we are waiting for someone else in his place. analyzed Rolland Courbis, for whom Aouar, Toko-Ekambi and Dembélé have a clear interest in finding another club. And if possible from the winter transfer window even if it will not be easy to find a way out in January.
