Asked about John Textor, new owner of OL, the former Lyonnais Marçal, accomplice of the American businessman on the side of Botafogo, was confident about the new boss of the Rhone club. Convinced that his arrival is not “no bluffing”the current defender of the Brazilian formation has, moreover, detailed the contribution of Textor. “John is very involved and we can see that the project is concrete. With him, it’s not a bluff. From now on, the idea is to fight with Flamengo and Palmeiras (respectively champions of Brazil in 2020 and 2022). We want to win titles. This is the ambition of Textor »thus launched Marçal in an interview granted to The Team before continuing.
“It’s informal, quiet. He goes to the club, attends training, sticks his head in the locker room. Once, during a greening, I met him at the hotel bar and we were able to discuss fifteen minutes together in a relaxed way. It is reachable. He loves football and knows the names of all the players. (…) He will want to seduce the club, the supporters. He will use the young people from the center, but not so early. I think he will mainly recruit experienced players, with a good CV, who will bring a winning mentality. » What can reassure Lyon supporters?
