The terrible observation of a former member of the house!


Ninth in Ligue 1 after 24 Championship days, Olympique Lyonnais is having one of the worst seasons in its recent history. From supporters to former players, this is clearly not the time for optimism.

Laurent Blanc, OL Lyon Olympique Lyonnais

While hope seemed to have returned after a fine victory against Lens at Groupama Stadium (2-1), OL relapsed last Friday on the lawn of Abbé Deschamps (2-1). Faced with the promoted Auxerrois who had not won since last fall, the Gones sank in the second half conceding the ninth defeat of the 2022-2023 financial year. If the season is still long, a qualification for a top European competition is already far away.

For the moment, the arrival of the new American owner, John Textor, has not reversed the trend. On the bench, Laurent Blanc is also struggling to prove himself since taking office. For some Rhone fans and other observers, however, this decline of the Rouges et Bleus is not surprising. For several years, OL has in fact been gradually sinking into a worrying slump.

There is no aberration in seeing OL being where they are today”

This is in particular the observation of Sydney Govou who rose to fame with Les Gones in the early 2000s. In an interview with the daily Progressthe former striker was very clear-sighted about the current situation at OL. “Auxerre hadn’t won in Ligue 1 for three and a half months, and we therefore feel disappointment, because the last matches suggested that there was better. This is a sign that OL have returned to the ranks, the downgrading which dates back a few years, is undeniable”. the 43-year-old man was so sorry.

There is no aberration in seeing OL be where they are today. It’s more infuriating than truly shocking.” continued the native of Puy-en-Velay seeming to have unfortunately resigned himself to the current state of things.
