OL recalls its alumni, Zeffane applies

Free since the end of March and the termination of his contract in Turkey, Mehdi Zeffane would see himself bouncing back in Ligue 1 next season. The right side especially has a weakness for Olympique Lyonnais, his training club which is trying to recover some of its former players.

Where is Mehdi Zeffane’s career at? After his stint in Russia at Krylia Sovetov, the 29-year-old right-back tried to revive himself in Turkey this winter. But things went wrong at Yeni Malatyaspor, who terminated their contract last March. ” I left the club for unpaid wages “Explained the Algerian international to Foot Mercato, before considering a return to Ligue 1 this summer. ” It’s still early, because some clubs are not yet completely set on their future. But there are some handshakes “, he confided without giving more details.

We know, however, that a phone call from Olympique Lyonnais would not displease him, knowing that his training club plans to recover some of his former players. “ Lyon is my hometown. OL, my training clubrecalled Mehdi Zeffane. OL are not having their best season, that’s for sure. Maybe they want to regain an identity by returning to training. I’m not in charge, so it’s hard to talk about it, but I always wish the best to Lyon. And when I hear that old people might come back, I stay attentive. »

The Call of Zeffane’s Foot

I am not at all in contact with the leaders of OL, even if I still have many friends there. If tomorrow, Lyon calls me to come back, I will study the proposal and I will be open to this possibility, possiblyslipped the side passed by Rennes. We’ll see. I’m open. I had the chance to win titles, to play in good clubs in France and abroad, I think I gained a lot of experience as a player and as a man. “A priori, Lyon is rather targeting former Gones who have more breakthrough at the highest level, like Alexandre Lacazette or Corentin Tolisso.
