OL: Tagliafico denounces “a vicious circle”


By: Manu Tournoux

Nicolas Tagliafico pointed out the rotation of coaches at Olympique Lyonnais.

Olympique Lyonnais has had four coaches in less than two years: Laurent Blanc, Jean-François Vulliez, Fabio Grosso and Pierre Sage who is currently acting. An instability deplored by Nicolas Tagliafico in a press conference before the match against Monaco this Friday in Ligue 1.

“It’s the first time I’ve known so many coaches in such a short time,” said the Argentine left-back. This is not a good thing for the team. It’s a vicious circle: the team performs poorly, we change coaches, things get better, then we relapse, and we change coaches. We have to change things. »

The 2022 world champion believes that the players also have their share of responsibility in the current situation. “The coach who arrived comes to help and to give everything, but in the end, it’s also up to us to give everything and be all together,” he continued. It’s up to us to respond. »

Tagliafico spoke of the tactical changes made by Pierre Sage, the interim coach. “We work with Pierre Sage as with the other coaches,” he declared. On the tactical side, it may be simpler for some because it is more basic. But in the end, the important thing is motivation and wanting to move forward. »

OL, who are currently last in the championship with 2 wins, 4 draws, 9 defeats and 10 points on the clock, will have to react against ASM to move away from the red zone. The pressure is high on the players, but also on the interim coach, who must find solutions to get the club out of this crisis.
