In the provided workforce of OL, we do not yet know what the role of Jeff Reine-Adelaide will be. The midfielder, affected by two serious knee injuries, feels good at OL. Grateful for the support of the club, he is determined to impose himself there.
The most expensive transfer in the history of OL in the summer of 2019, Jeff Reine-Adelaide could not really justify the 25 million euros paid for him by the Lyon club three years ago. Indeed, he suffered a first rupture of the cruciate ligaments in December 2019 which kept him away from the field for six months. Then, he was loaned to Nice and suffered a similar misadventure in February 2021. Returning from his injured loan, he only found the Lyon jersey on March 7 during a trip to Lorient. In other words, Jeff Reine-Adelaide would very much like to show up with OL after these periods of frustration.
OL were there for him, Reine-Adelaide does not forget
But, beyond the negative feelings inspired by his misadventures, Reine-Adelaide keeps smiling at OL. He feels good at the club especially thanks to the support he received after the unfortunate episodes of his career. This is what he said to Progress in an interview. The 24-year-old midfielder is indebted to OL, detailing how the Rhone club remained by his side in the trials.

“ OL’s role was incredible. When I return to OL in July, I come back from loan and OL place their trust in me with precious words. The club says they want to get me back on my feet. It was very important, the physiotherapists were there. I never felt let down by OL. I have always felt this confidence from the president, from the coach. Everyone pushed me. OL gave me love and affection. It was really important. I really thank the whole club that pushed me. And that was revealing when I returned to the field in front of Lorient. The tributes I received, from my teammates, the coach, the staff, the president, marked me for life. “, he revealed. Reine-Adelaide is therefore fully motivated to put OL back on track and win them titles again, as he confided at the end of the interview. It remains to be seen whether he can be included in Peter Bosz’s system.
