Lyon: support but also a lot of pressure … Aulas speaks on the Bosz case

After three consecutive defeats in Ligue 1, Olympique Lyonnais coach Peter Bosz finds himself under pressure. And if the president of Les Gones Jean-Michel Aulas continues to support his coach, the Dutch technician will quickly have to restart the machine.

Jean-Michel Aulas still believes in Peter Bosz.

Olympique Lyonnais have had a totally decent start to the season. On April 8, Ligue 1 days, the Rhone club occupies 6th place in the 6-point ranking of Lorient, 3rd. But the Gones are in a negative spiral with three consecutive defeats in the league.

And already weakened by a disappointing 2021-2022 exercise, OL coach Peter Bosz has not escaped criticism over this period.

Aulas thought about firing Bosz, but…

But internally, the Dutch technician can still count on the support of its president Jean-Michel Aulas. Active on the social network Twitter to defend his coach, the Lyon boss spoke for L’Equipe in order to support him. We are not going to question everything after three successive defeats even if it is unbearable to lose. But aren’t we taking an additional risk by changing coaches when it’s the 8th day, when we have 13 points as 6th? It’s not reasonable but to say that we didn’t think about it, noa still recognized JMA.

But the answer to the question is that we met the coach and all the staff in the best conditions to succeed. And if we are 8th at the end of the season, I would have resigned before. We will be careful. Of course, there may be fear but we will get there and it is not the coach who is responsible. Reviews on social media? obviously only irritates me but I think those who say I’m overwhelmed are more so than me. This is the advantage when over 35 years of experience and 60 titles on the clock, he recalls. A way for Aulas to reassert its authority against the rumble of fans on the networks.

The next decisive matches

However, Bosz will still quickly have to restart the machine. Despite a tough calendar to come (Lens, Toulouse, Rennes, Montpellier, Lille, Marseille, Nice), Aulas is expecting victories quickly. If you change coach before going to Lens, Rennes, Nice, you put the one who arrives in a situation… Whereas if you are convinced that you have the right coach, he will not let you down on these matches- there, he will win them and I prefer to be my place than that of Lens, Rennes and Nice even if he (Nice) change coach, an Aulas terminus. Bosz therefore remains the man for the Lyon situation, for the moment…
