This Sunday evening, Olympique Lyonnais will face Paris-Saint-Germain on its turf. A match that promises to be complicated for Lyon. Since the beginning of the season, OL have made a series of mistakes, two defeats and a draw. It must be said that the club is going through a crisis of both sporting and political magnitude. War is declared between John Textor, the new owner of OL and Jean-Michel Aulas. What do the fans think?

"An Olympique Lyonnais incapable"

Frustration, disappointment, these are the feelings of Olympique Lyonnais supporters facing this start of the season in Ligue 1. "Currently, it is an Olympique Lyonnais incapable, we are in the middle of the table, we have disappointing results, I would not talk about relegation but not far," regrets a supporter. "We feel that there is not a great serenity that emerges," analyzes another. "It's a catastrophic start to the season."

With two defeats, including a stinging one against Montpellier, 4-1, and a draw against Nice, some throw the stone on the coach, Laurent Blanc. "You have to bring out the right people: a coach who doesn't care, who talks about leaving himself, who is friends with opposing coaches, who smiles when he loses, we don't want that at OL," said a Lyonnais. "He only plays young players, he only lets the players who deserve it pass time," said another.

"We must give Laurent Blanc time" and trust him"

Other supporters try to stay positive. "I think you have to give him time and trust him. He is still world champion, he has a great career and there are 11 players on the field," insists a fan of the club.

An Olympique Lyonnais also tormented by the war between the new owner of the club John Textor and the former president Jean-Michel Aulas who seized the accounts of OL and obtained from the justice a freeze of 14.5 million euros.
