Lyon coach Laurent Blanc has admitted that his training does not meet his expectations at all.
When he arrived as Olympique Lyonnais coach, replacing Peter Bosz, Laurent Blanc set himself the goal of getting Les Gones back on track before the start of the second part of the championship. A forecast which, today, seems a little too optimistic. As Ligue 1 prepares to resume, the Rhone team still seems to be in difficulty. The defeat on Thursday in a friendly against the modest formation of Monza (1-2) testifies to this.
Blanc deplores the lack of aggressiveness of his team
At the end of this match, White gave a rant. For him, it is inconceivable that OL are so failing, and in particular in terms of investment. “There is also a mindset problem. When we lose the ball, we are not aggressive enough, we cannot behave like that. If you don’t snatch it, the ball, the guys opposite don’t give it to you. This message must be remembered,” he said.
During this match against Monza, Lyon also had the misfortune to lose two defenders to injury, namely Malo Gusto and Henrique. Knowing that Nicolas Tagliafico takes advantage of his post-World Cup absences, the Lyonnais will approach the trip to Brest being greatly reduced. “This is the worst news of the evening, lamented the Cévénol. Wow! Someone is after us on the wing guards. We will have to face it”.
The former French coach is now impatiently awaiting the winter transfer window. For him, there is no doubt that OL need new blood and in many sectors. “The club has changed coaches but we continue with the same mentality. It’s the players who make the game, we’re there to help them, guide them. You have to be ambitious but also measure your ambition. To change things, you have to change the coach and it’s already done. And you can’t see it, but improving the group is important”. According to L’Equipe, his top priority is to sign a centre-back.
