In an interview with Europe 1, Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas opened the door to Laurent Blanc, at a time when Peter Bosz is threatened.
The Dutch coach of Olympique Lyonnais has until the end of February to redress the bar, after an extremely chaotic first part of the season. If the results do not improve in a month, Peter Bosz could be the first fuse to blow on the Lyon side. And to replace him, Jean-Michel Aulas already has an idea behind his head: Laurent Blanc, currently stationed at Al-Rayyan in Qatar. “Yes, I think about it (Laurent Blanc). He is a boy who has incomparable experience. I had seen him for a long time in Russia during the World Cup. I had felt this capacity in him ” launched Jean-Michel Aulas at the end of the week on the airwaves of Europe 1.

After the departure of Sylvinho, Laurent Blanc was close to joining Olympique Lyonnais. But after having auditioned all the candidates, the sports director of the time Juninho had finally set his sights on Rudi Garcia to everyone’s surprise. Garcia rather than White, many OL supporters did not understand this decision on the part of the Brazilian. This choice also surprised Jean-Michel Aulas and years later, the president of OL confirmed that if Laurent Blanc had not joined Lyon, it was only Juninho’s fault. “All this to remind us that at the time, Laurent Blanc was not selected by the sports director! Today, Peter Bosz is greatly appreciated, all of OL are with him with absolute confidence to achieve the goals in Ligue 1 and Europa League ” published Jean-Michel Aulas on his Twitter account. A way to charge Juninho, who is no longer there to defend himself, and to further open the door of Olympique Lyonnais to Laurent Blanc.
