Laurent Blanc arrives in Lyon with shock therapy


The new coach of Lyon, Laurent Blanc, assured this Monday that he wants to achieve as many points as possible in the next games in order to work calmly with the team during the Qatar 2022 World Cup break.

Blanc was today unveiled as the new coach of Lyon, who last night formalized the sacking of Dutchman Peter Bosz due to poor results achieved in recent weeks.

In a press conference after leading his first training session, the former Barcelona, ​​​​​​Marseille, Inter and Manchester United defender explained that he addressed the players with a “relatively short but very determined” intervention.

“You have to get as many points as possible in the next games” before the World Cup break, where “we will learn to work together,” Blanc said.

During that time, he can better study his squad’s “strengths and weaknesses” to “adapt them to my style,” Blanc added. At the moment, he acknowledged that one of the aspects that must work hard is “the confidence” of the players, which has been damaged by the “inconsistent results” achieved so far.

Lyon, who used to be one of the great teams in Ligue 1, are currently in ninth position in the table with 14 points and 12 off the lead.

Bosz, who Lyon failed to qualify for European competition last season, was sacked after a dismal run of four defeats and a draw in his last five Ligue 1 games.

Blanc admitted that “the players are aware of the situation”, where the classification “does not reflect the goals set”, so they must offer a “higher performance”.

“Reinforcements? We have to wait”

Asked if they plan to strengthen themselves in the winter market, he recalled that the transfer window “opens on January 1, there are a lot of games left until then.”

Blanc was world champion in 1998 and European in 2000 with the French national team as a player and during his time on the bench he coached Bordeaux, the ‘bleu’ team itself, PSG and Al Rayyan from Qatar . He has been without a team since February and is now back in France after leaving PSG in 2016.
