He Lyon said goodbye this Wednesday to the Champions League having been one of the great revelations of the competition. Few could hope to see the team he leads Rudi Garcia in the semifinals, where he fell against Bayern Munich (0-3). But that good role in Europe was not reflected in the League-1 before the break, staying out of European competition for the first time in 24 years.
At Lyon they are aware that, despite good work in LisbonThey will have to take important exits Mostly young players who have caught the attention of the greats of Europe and who will seek a leap in their careers. It is the case of the young Houssem Aouar (22 years), who has already been related to Real Madrid and other equipment like City or Juventus. About him and Dembele I speak Juninho Pernambucano.
“There will be exits, that’s for sure, but I’m not worried about them. When you have players who have had a great competition like the one we’ve seen, like Moussa Dembelé and Houssem Aouar … (in reference to the possible sale of both). .. We will have to have the same hope to return to the Champions League next season, “said Juninho, current Lyon sports directives after the game.
Real Madrid has been linked to Aouar, but the big problem to see him dressed in white is that the club’s plans do not include making signings this summer to alleviate the losses due to the coronavirus. Only some millionaire sale or some agreement that delayed the payment until 2021 would make it possible to sign another of the talents recommended by Zidane.
The Brazilian also spoke of the elimination in the Champions League: “We are sad, but it has not been easy. We left with our heads very high from today’s game. I am very proud of my players and my squad. Maybe if we had scored one or two goals at the start … I’m proud of the team. “
The words of Rudi García
Olimpique Lyon coach Rudi García said his team should have gone ahead on the scoreboard in the first half of the Champions League but that in the end it was Bayern who went ahead “thanks to the individual quality of Gnabry”.
“We should have gone ahead on the scoreboard but they did it thanks to the individual quality of Gnabry. We went to the break with a feeling of injustice but then we did not lower our guard,” said the French coach.
Lyon had two great chances early in the game before Bayern took the lead with a great goal from Serge Gnabry that later also scored a second for the German team.
“In any case we can be proud of our campaign and the game we played today. Naturally I am disappointed. We were unlucky at the beginning of the game when we had two great chances,” added Garcia.
