• Arrived at OL last winter, in the middle of the war in Ukraine, the 22-year-old Brazilian winger Tetê will be from Lyon again this season, with a new loan from Shakhtar Donetsk.

  • The Lyon leaders would like the permanent transfer of this promising player, decisive on 7 occasions at the end of last season, but the negotiations are "not easy" with Shakhtar.

  • Delighted with this summer recruitment so far, Bruno Cheyrou has just distinguished himself this Friday at a press conference with a spade against Olympique de Marseille.

The three-star recruitment of Olympique Lyonnais continues, despite the absence of the European Cup next season.

After the unexpected returns of two major figures of the previous decade, Alexandre Lacazette and Corentin Tolisso, OL have just announced this Friday afternoon that Mateus Tetê will still be Olympian this season.

Still within the framework of the system put in place by Fifa for players in the Ukrainian championship, OL has therefore reached an agreement to keep the Brazilian winger until June 30, 2023, under contract with Shakhtar Donetsk until December. 2023.

“We have been discussing with Shakhtar for a while, because our wish with Tetê goes beyond this season, clearly announces football director Vincent Ponsot.

What we want is a clear situation so that Tetê feels good and that we are committed to a long-term project.

“But as Jean-Michel Aulas slips, referring to “not easy” relations with the leaders of the Ukrainian club, the best short-term solution was to go through the Fifa system, as had been the case for the arrival in Ligue 1 of the 22-year-old player on March 31.

“He immediately brought us something different”

“Last January, when we were looking for a winger, the name of Tetê had quickly been crossed out because for us, it was a utopia, says Bruno Cheyrou, director of recruitment at OL.

He was a player who was too good and too expensive for us.

Six months later, it becomes possible, and we see that he immediately brought us something different, all his Brazilian madness, when he had not played for three months.

“Few Brazilians are absolute models of professionalism like Tetê.

He is used to doing extra training after his session", confides to @ 20Minutes Franck Henouda, the agent who launched the Brazilian sector of @FCShakhtar

Decisive 7 times in 11 games played in April and May (2 goals and 5 assists), Mateus Tetê could well do a lot of damage for his first full season in France, with full preparation with the team.

To tell the truth, we might be surprised to see this young talent, who distinguished himself in the Champions League against Real Madrid in October 2020, stay in Lyon despite the absence of the European Cup.

“I want to continue the adventure with this club beyond 2023”

"Everyone received me very well here and all the promises made to me were kept," says the Brazilian.

It played a big role in my decision to stay in Lyon.

Everyone around me is even working so that I can extend beyond this new year.

I give my word: I want to continue the adventure with this club.

“A declaration of love which has enough to make the Lyon leaders euphoric, this Friday, when all that is missing is a left side to already complete the summer recruitment.

Which pushes Bruno Cheyrou to a public

punchline

aimed at OM and Jorge Sampaoli, alongside an obviously hilarious JMA: "There may be coaches in other Ligue 1 clubs who are in the process of want to leave because they are jealous of the recruitment we are doing, and that is not trivial”.

Karma's coming
