« We discovered a boy who was just extraordinary in his humility. Very discreet and crazy classy. Fine tactician toosaid the former Olympique Lyonnais goalkeeper on RTL. He was always in important tactical setup conversations. He gave his opinion and we consulted him regularly. He was very interesting. I even bought his jersey at auction because I really like the player. »
Textor also knows how to listen
Delighted with the choice of John Textor, Grégory Coupet was less of a fan of Gennaro Gattuso. The latter had reached an agreement with the American, who finally revised his plans by listening to internal criticism of his target. Enough to rejoice the goalkeeping coach who did not expect to see the businessman change his mind. “ It’s perhaps a less high-sounding name than that of Gattuso but Fabio played in Ligue 1, he speaks French, he left an incredible image at OL “, he argued.
« Rémi Garde or Bruno Genesio, with love for the club, invested 200%. Fabio followed Olympique Lyonnais. He is aware of everything that is happening. The club needs a person who reassures, who brings back Lyon’s identity. When you survey the medical staff, the managers and all the people around the club, everyone says that Fabio at OL would be great! For once, I’m glad Mr. Textor listened to the club », slipped Grégory Coupet to finish with a free tackle.
