OL recently terminated Laurent Blanc’s contract. Since then, Les Gones have been looking for a new coach capable of turning things around. Gennaro Gattuso is very close to signing, but John Textor has doubts.
In Lyon, time is running out a little to find a new coach. John Textor will have to make a strong choice and decide. If Gennaro Gattuso is a credible prospect for the Rhone board, the Italian’s profile does not suit everyone. Fans and observers have doubts about the former Milanese’s ability to change things. His previous experiences as a coach were indeed mixed. Faced with the situation, John Textor opens up to other profiles to take over the reins of theOL. According to information from 90 mina new name has been studied for several hours.
Gattuso has competition for OL
The media in fact indicates that OL are increasingly keen on Frank Lampard. The Englishman is highly regarded by John Textor and has been without a club since leaving Chelsea a few months ago. Like Gattuso, his past experiences have not exactly been a success. Note that for his part, Graham Potter declined the offer to become the coach of Olympique Lyonnais, as did Oliver Glasner (ex-Frankfurt) for the moment. Before the reception of Le Havre this weekend in Ligue 1, we should in any case know the identity of the new strong man of Les Gones. The latter are in last position in the French championship and the challenge promises to be significant for whoever takes up the torch. Unless there is a twist, it should therefore be Gennaro Gattuso or Frank Lampard. Two coaches who do not speak French and who will therefore need time to get the temperature of the Lyon context. Not really reassuring for OL fans.
