Lyon on another French veteran?


By: Manu Tournoux

After having repatriated Alexandre Lacazette and Corentin Tolisso, will Olympique Lyonnais afford the services of a certain Yann M’Vila? The player applies.

After a disastrous first part of the season to say the least, Olympique Lyonnais limited the damage by stringing together a series of three victories at the last minute. Under the leadership of a Pierre Sage appointed in place of Fabio Grosso, the Gones have left the red zone, although they are only two units ahead of their first pursuer and barrier, Toulouse. As announced by its boss, John Textor, OL wants to take advantage of the winter transfer window to strengthen itself and now a candidate has presented itself, in the person of Yann M’Vila.

Without a club since the end of his contract last summer with Olympiakos, the midfielder with twenty-two caps for the French team (between 2010 and 2012) is always up for a new adventure. He also spoke about it during an interview published Thursday by Progress. The former AS Saint-Etienne has not closed the door to a return to France, why not to OL. “ I spoke with a lot of clubs in Ligue 1, but I didn’t get the little thing. Given my qualities and my leadership, I think I can help a lot of teams. I believe in myself. I don’t need money, I just want to play. »


Obviously a little call with the hidden foot to an Olympique Lyonnais who has a total budget of fifty million euros to strengthen and who would not be against the fact of recovering an experienced player to strengthen a midfielder who has been terribly lacking of consistency in recent months. In the meantime, Yann M’Vila is continuing a lot of fitness work in Lyon.
