Olympique Lyonnais’ winter transfer window seems complicated, and that does not help the affairs of OL leaders who have already been strongly criticized. Vincent Ponsot and Bruno Cheyrou are in the crosshairs.
It is an understatement to say that the Lyon supporters have turned against the director of football and the head of the recruitment unit of their favorite club, and it is not the current events at Groupama Stadium that will reverse the trend. While Laurent Blanc is preparing to see Malo Gusto leave, and that several players promised to leave during this month of January, are rather left to stay, the storm is brewing above Olympique Lyonnais. While OL vegetates in the soft underbelly of Ligue 1, the concern is great to see the club of John Textor and Jean-Michel Aulas return definitively to the ranks, and only live from its memories. In After Foot, Daniel Riolo did not take long to identify the problem, or rather the problems.
Ponsot and Cheyrou, the two dunces of Lyon
🔴🔵 Daniel Riolo on the OL transfer window: “I hope they don’t work in Lyon. If they work to do that, it’s worse than anything. If my son has bad grades, I I hope they won’t say to me ‘yet he works’. Because that means that I have a dunce” pic.twitter.com/oJxM8s3SDG

24 hours after his return to Twitter, and a first virile, but correct exchange with Jean-Michel Aulas, Daniel Riolo delivered the substance of his thoughts on the current situation. ” Edouard Jay (Editor’s note: RMC journalist in Lyon) told me that there was an urban legend that the Ponsot-Cheyrou duo did not work at all, but in fact they did. Well that’s even worse. Because if I’m told that they’re working and that for a year it’s been like that, then it’s worse than anything. If my son at school, I am told that he works, but that he has bad grades, I tell myself that there is a problem, because I have a dunce. There, we will have to call Acadomia for the director of recruitment and for the director of football. There we will have to find tutoring for the two dunces, it is worrying “Launched the journalist, visibly flabbergasted by the events experienced on the side of Lyon.
