OL have their new coach. Following the more than controversial departure of Rudi Garcia, marked by an open and public conflict with Juninho, the Rhone decision-makers have chosen to bet on Peter Bosz who we recently saw on the benches of Ajax, Borussia Dortmund and from Bayer Leverkusen. A choice that seems to delight Lyon supporters, at least on social networks, and on which the three thinking heads of the club from the capital of Gaul returned to a press conference this Sunday.
“With Vincent Ponsot and Juninho, we worked well and we are happy to come up with the most effective and important solution, which will allow us to reach the second stage of the rocket. The first was the arrival of Juninho two years ago. We made sure to go towards the coach profile, the most suited to our wishes: experienced, with the ability to play young people, an offensive reference for the media and fan groups ”, launched President Jean-Michel Aulas.
Peter Bosz was followed since the duel against Ajax
“When we did this profile, there weren’t many candidates, so we hurried to get them. Peter fit this profile. I remembered Peter Bosz at the head of Ajax in the semi-finals of the Europa League, which caused us 1000 problems. […] I spoke with many people who worked with him at the time, including Rolland Courbis, who confirmed to me that he had a very strong personality and spoke good French ”, concluded the OL boss, confirming that Bosz’s arrival on the bench at Groupama Stadium responds to a genuine desire to establish a new dynamic in the game.
“We’ve been following Peter since the game against Ajax. His playing convictions are very close to those of Juninho. Adapting to the club’s project was a criterion. […] We received 50 applications for the position, but we wanted someone who matched our profile ”, confirmed the right arm of President Vincent Ponsot. “I think Peter Bosz will be happy with us. I hope he will bring us all his knowledge to get us where we want to go. I thank him for that “, for his part launched Juninho. Let’s hope for Aulas, Ponsot and Juni that they made the right choice!
