OL: White charges his attackers


Laurent Blanc was not kind to his players, following the draw that Olympique Lyonnais settled for against Stade Brestois at Groupama Stadium (0-0).

The partners of Alexandre Lacazette take it for their rank. Wednesday evening, after the draw conceded at home by Olympique Lyonnais against Stade Brestois (0-0, 21st day of Ligue 1), Laurent Blanc was annoyed against his players. In a press conference, the Gones coach specifically attacked his attacking sector. The former coach of the France team regretted the unconverted opportunities against the Bretons coached by Eric Roy.

“There is a lack of aggressiveness”

“There is a lack of efficiency. If there were no chances and goalscoring situations, I could say it’s sterile dominance, but it’s not. I think players have to have that aggressiveness to score goals. They didn’t score that many. In their attitude, there is a lack of spontaneity and aggressiveness to score. I see situations from the bench and I feel that they are not going to do the right thing. You have to be killers. Once you have scored, the flow of the match is no longer the same. It is this first goal that must be scored.”

Equally candid in speaking of the tensions at the club, “Lolo” points the finger at the fact that his team has only found the net 30 times since the start of the 2022-2023 season. On its last outings, Olympique Lyonnais also remained silent against Clermont (0-1) and Nantes (0-0), before this new hitch against SB29. Tenth in the standings with 29 points, the Rhodanians are significantly behind European places, fifth Rennes being eleven lengths behind. Next Saturday, Anthony Lopes’ teammates will visit Troyes, as part of the 22nd round.
