If the Dutch coach Peter Bosz was announced by OL on May 29, he was obviously not the only track considered by the Lyon leaders.

In an interview given this Tuesday to


, Jean-Michel Aulas evokes the coaches who had been targeted by the sporting director Juninho, the general director of football Vincent Ponsot, and himself.

The Lyon president is careful not to mention Christophe Galtier in this list, even if he was a very serious lead, as he was still under contract with Losc.

Among the six coaches envisaged, we therefore find Peter Bosz and Rudi Garcia, for whom a contract extension has apparently been mentioned.

But OL also thought well about another former Borussia Dortmund coach, Lucien Favre.

Vieira and Stephan also on the list

Very convincing during his time at OGC Nice (2016-2018) and having already met JMA when Bruno Genesio was chosen, the Swiss (and French-speaking) coach was therefore a serious option for Lyon, as we are doubted.

Fantasized by many supporters, the Argentinian Marcelo Gallardo, still stationed at River Plate, was also in this

short list

, completed by the French Julien Stéphan and Patrick Vieira.


OL: With his very offensive game, can Peter Bosz have the same “perfect marriage” in Lyon as with Ajax?
