This week, Olympique Lyonnais denied a crisis match, while Bruno Genesio’s side slipped a banana peel under the feet of Peter Bosz. OL will have to react quickly to calm everyone down.
Lyon’s third consecutive loss in Ligue 1 (Lorient, Monaco and PSG) put some pressure on Jean-Michel Aulas’s club. Now sixth in the standings, 9 lengths behind Paris and 7 behind OM, theOL will have to return to the path of victory. And it won’t be easy, as Alexandre Lacazette and his teammates will travel to Lens in a week. During this week of international truce, and while we evoked the economic problems of John Textor to finalize the takeover of the club, Olympique Lyonnais energetically replied and denied versions that suggested that an emergency meeting had been organized as a result of the defeat against PSG, with an ultimatum given to Peter Bosz. From elsewhere, The Rhône club also took note of Bruno Genesio’s statements in an interview with Daniel Riolo. The Rennes coach noted that Peter Bosz had more credit than he had in his time. An exit that obviously made noise.
Lyon and his coaches, it’s chaotic
For Elton Mokolo, Bruno Genesio is not entirely right, although obviously the Dutch coach of Olympique Lyonnais benefits from special circumstances that spare him any worries. ” The subject of Bruno Genesio’s statements is not so much about Peter Bosz, but more about how an Olympique Lyonnais coach is viewed. For me, Genesio was the result of a context. In 2015-2016, OL entered their new stadium headed by Bruno Genesio and they had the idea of a rise in power. And compared to that, I think he suffered from the image of the “imposter”, that is, the one who should not be there, he was judged that way. There was a mismatch between wanting to get closer to PSG and the fact that he was only Hubert Fournier’s assistant in absolute terms, and he suffered from that. Yes, on certain points he may be right compared to Peter Bosz, but if we broaden the debate I don’t have the impression that Sylvinho has benefited from much indulgence, that Rudi Garcia, who reached the semi-final of the League champions, has beneficiary of indulgence. Peter Bosz benefits from an important circumstance, namely that Olympique Lyonnais thinks we should stop writing redundancy checks to coaches and that we will let Bosz work. Especially since there are uncertainties in particular regarding the owner. In a normal world, Peter Bosz is obviously fired, but there they may want some stability. “, says the journalist.
