Foot OL – Two huge surprises for the future OL coach! – Olympique Lyonnais

The file for the future coach of Olympique Lyonnais continues to bounce back. Gennaro Gattuso has still not signed. The trio of interims could keep control, while Oliver Glasner returns to the race.

Laurent Blanc was informed of the release last Friday, even if the news was only made official on Monday by Olympique Lyonnais. His fate was sealed after the heavy defeat against PSG (1-4), in a match where the players did not give the impression of wanting to fight to leave last place any time soon. John Textor has been looking for a new coach for 10 days, and so far nothing has come of it. Only one technician said yes, it was Gennaro Gattuso, insistently proposed by Jorge Mendes. But the American owner did not give the green light for the Italian’s arrival, in a somewhat humiliating situation for the former AC Milan pitbull. Each hour that passes reduces the chances of seeing Gattuso sit on the Lyon bench, as it appears clear that this is a default choice which does not satisfy John Textor.

Gattuso not that close to signing


First consequence, no one is named while Gattuso and Mendes were hoping for an announcement this Tuesday. As a result, the interim coaches are still there, and they could even stay, according to Le Progrès, until the next match against Le Havre next weekend. The trio composed of Jean-François Vulliez, Jérémie Bréchet and Sonny Anderson passed their first exam successfully, since the players were very receptive to Tuesday’s session and showed their satisfaction at seeing the situation evolve. As a result, seeing John Textor take his time and entrust the team to this balanced trident is now a real possibility, while the American initially wanted to quickly choose a new technician.

Glasner is still there

Another surprise, the return of a more than serious competitor for Gennaro Gattuso. RMC explains that Oliver Glasner, who no longer seems at all among the favorites to coach the German team, has still not said no to joining OL. He gave himself time to think and might finally show interest. This is currently the surprise of this week, as the Austrian seemed to have swept away Lyon’s candidacy. Proof that nothing has yet been decided in this matter, which could therefore last longer than expected on John Textor’s side.
